Sparkle & Shine | Card

Hello friends!
I have a new card to share today which I made using lots of techniques. Here's a look at it :

I started out by first creating my card background using Ink Smooshing.  I used Mustard Seed and Broken China Distress inks to ink smoosh the background. I also added few black and gold paint splatters.

I then started to work on the focal of my card. I wanted to create a diamond ring so I die-cut out a circle out of white cardstock and then foam mounted it to create a raised look. I then coloured it using Inka Gold in Old Gold. Next, I heat-embossed the diamond from the Winnie and Walter My Precious stamp set using Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder and I slightly coloured it using my Zig markers to give it a hint of colour like the light coming out from a faceted diamond.

I also stamped and heat-embossed the rays using the same embossing powder. The ring, the diamond and the rays were all popped on the card front using foam tape.  I then added some Gold Chevron Washi Tape on the four sides of my card to add some balance to the design. Finally, stamped the sentiment which is also from the My Precious set to complete my card. I have gone very CAS, which is not my forte, but this idea was stuck in my head and I just had to execute it.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges :

Winnie and Walter Background Building Challenge with Mayuri ( I have created my own background by watercoloring the grey stripes)

I hope you liked my today's card. I tried to keep it clean and simple :) I would love to hear what you think of it. Thank you so much for dropping by!
