If you have a soft spot for shiny things, we have you covered at CASology this week!
Our new cue card is GLISTEN.

All that glistens, ain't gold...unless, of course you're making a card :) I got some new goodies in from Neat & Tangled and knew they would be perfect for this challenge! The heart and sentiment come together. I heat embossed both in gold detail embossing powder and then when to work with my Zig Clean Color brush pens and a water brush. I wanted to leave the right side of the heart less colored to give some balance since my sentiment was going on that side as well...my attempt at composition lol. A little strip of gold tape on the left side of the card and you have CAS card with lots of color and pop.

Tip: Using embossing powder to heat set images you want to watercolor 
is a great way to prevent unintentional blending of colors!

The other DT members have some shining cards of inspiration to share too! 
And be sure to say hi to our gracious sponsor for this week's prize!
