AECP Group 17 Level 1 Let It Shine

One to the next homework challenge. This time it was the Let It Shine.  Adding sparkly and elements that shine are one of my favorite things when creating a card.  So this homework I was ready for.  I selected one of my favorite Aletnew stamps which is a large, beautiful poppy from the Forever and Always stamp set.  I used the image using Versamark ink, my MISTI tool to stamp the flower on heavy weight white card stock.  I embossed the flower with detail gold  embossing powder.  I tried another gold powder but did not like the way it looked so I tried again.  I painted the petals using Zig fine tipped markers, using a water barrel brush.  I blended and added shading. When that was dry I reached for an old standby- Twinkling H2O paints to add the shimmer and shine to the petals.  The hello die is one of my favorites and use it all the time.  I die cut the top one from a gold paper, and then die cut two more from white card stock to layered the hello.  I die cut the paper using a stitch edge die,  I used some Altenew pink ink to spatter the background.  I glued the hello to the bottom right corner and added glitter gold Nuvo dots for accent.  I have used this set alot and I had the matching dies.  Simple and elegant.
