Crystal

Hello Everyone,
Last-minute Joe here submitting at the last second for CASology. For today I am also playing along with CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I used metallic paints for the soft color on the crystals. The ground gradually trailing off into white space. I this stamp set is from Stamplorations. I love this set and I do use it frequently.

The sentiment was stamped using Memento Desert Sand ink. The perfect color to complement the sparkly ground color and border.
Above: I wanted to show the soft color palette that this metallic watercolor creates. I used a mixture of light blue and green along with purple mixed with white. Below: I really dulled down the brightness to show you the luster wonderfulness of this watercolor paint. I sparkles and shines like a genuine crystal. Even the ground likes to sparkle and shine. Oh wait is that my sentiment. Why, why yes it is.

 Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.

All the best,
