You are a Classic - B Line Designs

Inspiration comes to me in the strangest ways sometimes. Yesterday it was in the shower!

I've been playing a bunch with glimmer powders and mists, but using them mostly in spray bottles. On this card I wanted only the portions of the stamped image to have a metallic look of a car. I didn't want the all over coverage that misting gives it. I stamped the B-Line Design image, colored it with my Copics and then used a new mixture I made for the final result. I added a little cheap hairspray, water and silver shimmering powder to a small jar then painted it on to the sections of the image I wanted shimmering! It worked great!

I would like to enter the following challenges with this card:

The Sweet Stop - Make it Masculine - SSS109

Catch the Bug Challenge Blog - Grads Dads and Other Celebrations

Stamp Something - Color challenge using beach colors

Thanks for taking a look!
