Hi crafters! I fell in love with the cute critters from the Polar Pals set by My Favorite Things and just coulnd’t stop creating with it. Today’s card is very clean and simple, but it packs a colorful punch, thanks to my Copics and a little help from a die by Neat & Tangled. The technique I’m showing can be applied to any sentiment die-cut, though. Check it out!

As you saw in the video, this card would have worked well without the black background for the sentiment as well. Thanks to the subtle background I created by spritzing some Copic marker ink on my card base, there was enough color there to help me ground the sentiment. But I wanted the black from the penguin to be reflected somewhere else as well, so I opted to go with the full sentiment.
Since I am still in love with all things shiny, I had to spritz my sentiment and its backdrop with my preferred mix of water and Perfect Pearls to create some shimmer. You can vary the strength of the effect: I spritzed it three times, and this gives it almost a shiny coating. If you spritz it only once from afar, you’ll only have a subtle, but still effective, shimmer.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
