Grey day here so needed something to brighten it up!

I also brightened up the desk with the glittery embossing powder - 🙈🙈
Started with two pieces of leftover black card  and stamped then clear embossed a Diamonds stamp by Kaisercraft down one side of the largest piece.

I bought this Funky Fossil Diamond stencil some time back - and tried a few times to use it with different mediums but simply wasn't happy with my end result -  then I bought some WOW 'White Twinkle' Embossing Powder. Which does exactly what it says!
Really happy with the result although I had two attempts at embossing the stencil on the other leftover piece before I was satisfied. 

After fussy cutting I positioned it over the diamonds but it looked kinda odd on it's own - so I embossed a Sun Ray stencil in the centre (Inkylicious) and sat the diamond on top.

Sentiment also by Inkylicious embossed with the same powder and added an odd strip of glitter card to make the size right for the base card!

Been a changeable week here - we've had some lovely days weather wise but also some fog and damp.
Being in lockdown means I want to be cheered by lots of blue skies and not made miserable by wet weather!
We are though better off than most as we do have lovely fields to look out on whatever the weather - and this morning the sheep arrived for their yearly overwinter visit from higher up!
Wherever you are I hope that all is well with you.
Thanks for visiting. x

super bright and sparkling your desk as well can't be bad. Dull and overcast here today and damp too but I did get out in the garden and plant my tulip bulbs into pots as per Monty Don's instructions. nice and deep and hopefully out of reach of that pesky squirrel that visits. Hugs Mrs A.

I am so glad you had the idea to add the extra sparkle behind the diamond because it has made this card really special. The black and silver look fantastic and I bet the shine is impressive in real life xx

Wow, wow, wow (and that isn't for the embossing powder, lol) A real show stopper of a card, and a perfect use of the stencils and sentiment! Absolutely gorgeous! I may need to check out the embossing powder after all
