"Thanks so Much" - a Card by Teresa

Hi and welcome to the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog today.  I get to be a guest designer again and thought i would share a quick card for all you cardmakers out there with the Medallion Star piece.

I wanted it to be a quick card so my base is just layered pieces of some Ruby Rock-it Faded Empire scraps that i had leftover from another project i did.  I chalked them all really good and glued them all down and then set to work on my chipboard medallion.

And for that i had some fun with lots of inks in my stash.  I pulled out lots of shades of pink to match the papers and then used each color to make the layers go from light to dark.  If you use white chalk on the chipboard first the next layer of pink will come out lighter since you created a light base for it.  It was fun experimenting with it and when i got all the colors the way i wanted them i glued it together with 3D foam dots and adhesive and let it all dry.  Then added the rhinestone in the middle and a few around the outside to make it sparkle more.  

After i attached it to the center of the card i sprayed all of it with some pixie dust spray to make the whole thing sparkle and seal the ink on the chipboard.  It's a really gorgeous piece of chipboard and i could think of a million other things to do with it too!!  My next one is going to be a snowflake!!
