AAA cards challenge #105: sparkle with video

This time the theme is: sparkle.
Our sponsor this time is Happy Little Stampers and you could win a $20 gift certificate.

And you get more time than the usual two weeks.

For my card I masked of about half (little less) on the cardfront. I intended to make a horizontal card, but it  turned into a portrait style card, oh well.

I inkblended Distress ink on the card ( picked raspberry, wilted violet, mermaid lagoon, mustard seed, twisted citron and candied apple) with the mini inkblending tools.

Then I grabbed two stencils ( Simon Says Stamp dotted circles) and one I made with nesting circle dies. and applied Lawn Fawn Yeti pigment inks over the background.

The idea was to make a sky full of fireworks, and then the bokeh effect as if I took a photo.
I don't have a fireworks stamp, you might need a bit of imagination ;-).

I heat set the pigment ink after applying it and then I layered other dots in top. It's important the biggest dots are the faintest and the smallest the most intense white.

After that I positioned my sentiment stamp from Wibra perfectly, and then I moved the cardbase...urgh..but I evened out with some glittery enamel dots.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and applied Wow! vintage peacock and heat set it. It's a fabulous glittery  powder, that just reinforces the theme of our challenge.
