Sparkle & Shine Challenge #8

   Challenge #8 at Sparkle & Shine is a photo inspiration, here:                            


                                             

I went with the red, white, and blue, using a mason jar and stars to capture the celebratory feeling of this photo.
Here's my take on it:
    

I used the mason jar stamp from Unity's Your Light Shines Itty Bity set, a Flourishes sentiment stamp, Martha Stewart silver embossing powder, Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles dies (outer frame is popped up with foam tape), Pretty Pink Posh star sequins, and light grey and blue Zig Clear Clean Water Colors for a touch of color on the white water color card.  The star paper and red card stock are from my stash.  I painted the light blue stars in the border with Wink of Stella for a little shimmer.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week-end.  Thanks for taking a look!

    How do you like your Zig water color markers?
    They look so fun-but I haven't taken the plunge yet :-)

    1. Thank you! I like the Zig markers quite a bit. They're easier to use than traditional water colors (for me, anyways). We bought the 12 pack to start off with and just added a couple of other colors.
