I stamped the image (which is very large) and coloured it with Copic markers and added lots of sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I added sparkle to the flourish, the stars, the flames and the dripping wax - sadly you can't see it in this photo! This was originally going to be a one-layer card, but Copics really bleed through card, so I cut out a portion of the stamp with the stitched edge die. I ran a Copic marker around the edge of the panel before adhering it to the card with dimensional tape. On the inside I cut a mat layer of deep yellow card and on the white panel I simply stamped a portion of the same image. I was going to add some colour, but instead I just added a touch of sparkle to the image - which you can see in the photo below. In order to show the shimmer, I've deliberately darkened the image. This week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#177 is to "Make Your Mark" - and I certainly did that on this card!
