Freshly Made Sketches #8 - Joy to the World

Hi there,
Today's post is for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week.  I embossed the Image with White Embossing Powder and coloured it with Perfect Pearls and my Aqua Painter.  I set the Perfect Pearls with a light spray of Hairspray.  Love the effect of the Perfect Pearls on the Night of Navy card, the colour is so intense and shiny.  I matted the main image with Whisper White to make it stand out from the rest of the card and mounted it on Dimensionals. I dry embossed the Night of Navy background and then coloured the dots with my Signo Gel Pen to carry the star theme through a bit more. 

This card was awarded a Perfect Princess Award this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
