Disco Fever


Disco Fever is one of the three new stamp sets revealed this month by Sparkle N Sprinkle.  All four of the new Neon Glitters - Energized! (orange), Electrified! (yellow), Exulted! (hot pink), and Exhilarated! (green) were also incorporated in this fun card.  

I started out by printing out the digi version and coloring her with Copic markers.  I also drew in the fish net stockings. Energized!, Electrified!, and Exulted! were added to her outfit.  Gold Detail embossing powder cover her belt and earrings while Ebony Spark embossing powder was used to cover her disco boots.



I wanted the card to look like a night club so the walls had to be dark.  To achieve this look, I took a piece of black cardstock and covered it with Sparkle embossing powder.  I love how this embossing powder looks so different depending on what color cardstock you use it on.   What disco club doesn't have a Disco Ball?  The Retro Disco Ball (by Die-Versions) was covered in Silver Dreams glitter.  This has a kaleidoscope of colors in the glitter and is perfect for this die cut.

The swirly background was created by die cutting the Scribbles Cutting Plate (by Taylored Expressions) from a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet.  After exposing the adhesive, I covered it with Exhilarated! neon glitter.

I also printed the sentiment and added Dimensional Glue and Energized! to part of it.  The Exulted! glitter ribbon was added a finishing touch to this very bright and vibrant card.

LOL! Love this card, Anne - I have those same grandma arms LOL and my favorite stockings to wear to school were the fish nets - my mom hated them saying they were "inappropriate" LOL but I liked them because they did not run. Since I bought my own clothing, it was important to keep that in mind. Still had garter belts then LOL I had several colors of those fish nets - to much information, right? LOL I like all the sparkle and razzle dazzle - but I don't think I'm strong enough to walk, let alone dance, in those platform boots! LOL Wonderful card design! hugs, de
