Todays card is a CAS card 
for the Simply Less is More Challenge......

It is a Sketch Challenge this week
I used black embossing paste through a stencil for the brush.
When dry, I hi-lighted one of the brushes with silver Starlight Metallic paints.
This is the first time I had tried them and they really do shine 
and gave good coverage over the black paste.
I tried different die fonts, one more Arty and the other Classic.
The paint splat under the sentiment is also The Starlight Paint.
I rotated the sketch and liked them both ways, 
so I'll have decide which way when I write on them!
