Sparkled & Sponged

It's been a while since I posted one of my challenge cards from StampNation.  This is my favorite from May!  It was made for a "Sparkled & Sponged" challenge.  It is SO glittery in real life!!  I wish I could capture that in my photo.

Have you ever tried the Faux Diamonds Technique?  It's really easy.  You know I'm not much of a technique junkie & I don't like to take out too many supplies or get dirty, so this is right up my alley :) You start by stamping your images and then in this case I sponged next.  Then press your paper into a versamark pad, covering it completely with ink and then cover it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  Heat set and you are done. 

I'll be back tomorrow with the new Cue Card for CASology!  In the meantime, check out StampNation...we have 317 video tutorials (holy cow), weekly challenges, my CAS Classroom, Trends Articles and MUCH more.  I'd love to catch up with you there!
