{iSSC22} So Tweet

Todays card features a cute stamp by Your Next Stamp, called You're So Tweet. I love using glossy accents, or crystal effects (SU) to create that super shiny look for water, or shiny metal surfaces, like this aluminium watering can! Just remember to make that your VERY last step, as it takes forever to dry if you use a heavy coating;) It can also warp your area quite a bit, so make sure that you have enough pop dots, or whatever you use, to keep the cut out image flatter if thats what you like. I also added CE to eyes on the birdie and a more subtle glaze (with a sakura glaze pen) to the tiny beak and feet. The bird's body is also stamped twine and popped up with a dimensional. I added baby brads to the nails on the can handle.

YNS's designers have some more card making tips to share, so check out our blog HERE for that.

I've also used this week's sketch layout from iSpy Sketch Challenges for my card. This week, the Secret Agents were inspired by THIS card from Julie Mogford (jules bmp @ SCS). Here is Kim's sketch version of Julie's card:
