Mission (IM)Possible ~ Star bright!


Hello friends!

Today's card is for the Mission  Impossible Possible 

quarterly-ish card group

where we receive a mystery item from a hostess

and then create a card with the item!

This mission's mystery item was a beautiful star bright stencil

from Spellbinders and it was sent to both Barb and I from Jeanette.

She also  purchased one for herself and

 we 3 have the same stencil to create our own versions of cards.

Mine probably should have been a candidate for the Hot Mess card!

I started by taking  a sheet of watercolor cold press paper

and did a dry flat wash using Altenew watercolors.

Once it was dry (several hours naturally), I used the Spellbinders

Star Bright stencil over the top, my ranger distress inks and blending 

foam brushes from Scrapbook.com.

The last creative part was a dusting of ultra fine glitter after 

pouncing the stencil and paper with versamark.

This card has a great New Year's flair with the sparkle and shimmer!

I added the string for a bit more drama 

and as a reminder of how we always have streamers and horns 

that blow strings each New Year's celebration :)

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions simple strips Crafty

stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

You can see Barb's card here 

and Jeanette's card here.

I'm up next Mission and the item I'll be sending them found me last week!

Honestly, I'm a little scared, LOL!

But a challenge it is!

Stay tuned for that mission -

 coming to a blog near you in the Spring '22!

Thanks for stopping by today!
