Be Inspired Challenge #59


I'm popping in real quick to share a card for The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired Challenge #59. Its a new challenge with a nice fall theme. For my card i went with the fall colors and used a TAWS set that was on the top of my stamp pile!

I am entering this into Inkspirational Shine Challenge, and yes their is shine on my card (i used perfect pearls). I thought i had taken pictures that would show the shine, but apparently i only thought i did, so later today i'm going to take a picture of the shine and update this post, so check back for my shine proof!!! hehehe!!!

It started with the Tri- Me stamp set and i stamped the triangles all over a white card base with orange, yellow and brown inks. Next i used two different color perfect pearls powders to color the triangles (i used pigment ink so the powders sticks to the ink nicely).

Next i die cut a triangle and used yellow pigment ink to color it. Then i stamped the Just For You in brown ink. With all the triangles shiny i wanted to tone it down a little so i wrapped the card with twine. I also found some wood veneer triangle and added them to the card base. I added the die cut triangle with foam dots and wa-la!

Edited to add this photo! It was hard to get the shine, you can see the copper like shine to the triangles, tilt the card another way and other triangles would shine.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
