Enjoy the Little Things

Hi! My today's card is showcasing a beautiful Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set named My Wild Rose 898 and fun technique to turn an old not so pretty pattern paper in to a stunner with Embossing Powder and Glitter.

AdhesivesSakura Glue Pen [Quicky], 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape [SAT01];
Cardstock: White, Watercolor CS, Pattern Paper;
Embellishments: Nuvo Crystal Drops - Ebony Black [650N], Simply White [651N];
OthersNuvo Masking Fluid [969N], Tim Holtz Stamp Platform [1707E];

My card was inspired from lovely new My Wild Rose Stamp Set. I used Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the image and the sentiment to the watercolor cardstock with Black Shadow Nuvo Hybrid Ink. Without removing the stamps and the cardstock, I inked the stamps with Versamark ink and stamped them again on top of previously stamped images. Then I heat embossed it with Clear Detail Embossing Powder. It wasn't necessary because Nuvo Hybrid ink is waterproof but I wanted to have a shiny look. 
Then I took Nuvo Masking Fluid and covered the flower with it. After Masking Fluid was dry, I taped my panel to my Glass Mat, spritzed the Watercolor Cardstock with water and sprinkled Cerulean Blue Nuance Watercolor Powder on top. I played with water and the powder until I was happy. 

After everything was dry, I rubbed off the Masking Fluid and colored the flower with Nuvo AquaFlow brush pens from Autumn Woodland and Spring Meadow sets. Some sparkle was added to it with Sakura Glue Pen and Purple Dust Glitter. I cut the panel out with Stitched Rectangle die and added few accents with Nuvo Crystal Drops - Ebony Black and Simply White.

For the background I used an old pattern paper which I didn't saw myself using as it was. So I pressed Versamark  ink pad to the edges and sprinkled on top of it Morning Glory Embossing Powder, Purple Dust Glitter and some Dalmatian Super Thick Embossing Powder. Because I used loose glitter and thick embossing powder, it was very important to melt the powder with the heat tool from underneath the paper. Glitter will 'melt' in to the Embossing Powder and won't go anywhere.
On following picture you can see how it looks before using the heat tool and after using the heat tool. 

I made a black glitter matting layers to help my panels to stand out. For that I covered the edges of the matting layers with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. After adhering panels to the center of the matting layers, I covered rest of the tape with Black Diamond Microfine Glitter. This is my new favorite black glitter - it's fine and sparkly and nice rich color. 
To complete my card, I added large dots of Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops to the background.
