Altenew Let It Shine Homework Day 3

Yesterday was day three of the Altenewacademy.com class and we went over sparkle pens.  What a great thing they are!  I am in love with my Wink of Stella marker but the new Spectrum Noir shimmer pens are amazing!  They have even more sparkle & shimmer than any other marker I've seen.  I just love them. I have had the clear Wink of Stella marker but I wasn't very impressed with the colored Wink of Stella when I had a chance to try them.  I had to try the Spectrum Noir sparkle pens when I saw them at JoAnn Crafts last week so I got the only set they had.

My card layout is rather simple because the colors are so bold. I embossed the Persian motifs images all over watercolor paper with pearl embossing powder.  Then I colored in the images with my three sparkle markers.  I blended some of the colors together.  I stamped, embossed & colored in one separate image so I could cut it out & mount it on the front of the card.  I then colored a strip of white paper with the purple sparkle pen & cut it out with the words thank you.  I attached the words & the extra piece to a vellum strip of vellum that I had embossed with a sentiment.

Thank you for your comments Beth. I recognized your picture from your card in the class gallery. I really loved the soft colors you used on your card. I couldn't comment because I don't have a twitter account. Jil
