Oldies but Goodies........

Happy Friday!  I am posting a card using some 'Older' backgrounds again this week. I learned to stamp via the Technique Junkies- so I encourage you to look back at some of the 'Older' techniques- which are all available on CD now- year by year! 
  I had to use some shimmery Technique Junkies backgrounds to create a colorful card. The far background is a TJ UFO....the seaweed layer was stamped onto the UFO first. Next I stamped it on a piece of text weight paper and onto a background called Simple Sumi (6/04). A couple of the areas on the Simple Sumi were dark, so where I could not see the lines, I cut out the image on the text paper and placed it over the dark area and then cut it out. I added shimmer to the background dots with Sakura Gelly Roll Pen.
 The turtle is stamped on a background called Pearl Ex Spray using Fall Fiesta Sparkle embossing Powder.  I added corner dies in Copper Metallic cardstock using a Cheery Lynn corner die.
  The image is called Cloisonne Sea Turtle/Seaweed. and is by Michael Strong Stamps. The digi sentiment is by Create with TLC.

Here is a sideview- hopefully capturing a better look at the shimmer:


Thanks so much for stopping by!
