First, a little Thanksgiving bird for everyone celebrating Thanksgiving here in the states and those serving and/or living abroad. For this card, since the focal image is stamped on patterned paper, I decided to use white cardstock the for the scalloped layer. I painted the scallops and the outer 1/4" of the oval with Angel Wings Shimmerz. (No need to cover the whole oval since only the little scallops are showing.) That sparkly layer REALLY pops!
Stamp: Bird (Unity)
Paper: Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Smooth (Neenah); Euphoria PP (BasicGrey)
Paint/Ink: Angel Wings Shimmerz (Shimmering Products); Lilac Posies Memento Dye Ink (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Petite Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
