Pop up card, part 2

I had to make another one::) This one is perhaps even more simple than the last, especially I just cut out a scrapbook sheet as a decoration. But this is so fun!

The cutouts are from a Sassafras paper and the background is metallic acrylics, watercolours and shimmering inks accented with a couple of acrylic diamonds. It's not as shiny as it sounds like, adding watercolour to the shimmering and metallic elements makes a very interesting transparent matter layer and underneath you can see the shimmer. Pretty toned down and elegant, actually. (Especially considering my love for glitter and rainbows:) )
