Shine Brightly with Embossed Gold Lanterns

Shine Brightly with Embossed Gold Lanterns
I am continuing my Mid-Autumn Festival cards today as the date to the festival is just next week. I hope I made enough cards to give away.

TGIF Challenges - TGIFC72 - Sketch
For this card, I am adopting TGIF Challenges - TGIFC72 - Sketch as shown above. The sketch is just perfect for the lanterns placement after I rotate it to the right!

Close-up: Embossed gold sentiment
I started out by stamping the lanterns and heat emboss them in gold. A line is hand drawn to connect the lanterns and heat embossed. The sentiment is stamped and heat emboss in gold as well.

Close-up: Embossed gold lanterns
Then, using distress ink, I colored the lanterns with clear Wink of Stella so that it will have shine on the lanterns that mimic the light glowing from within. In order to mimic the shine rays from the lanterns, a yellow ring is added to the edge of the lanterns using clear Wink of Stella.

Close-up: Shimmer on the lanterns
The background is applied with distress inks and later some water to mimic a night sky.

The scene is then attached onto a blue card base.
