I decided to focus on a card today- it's what I do.  ;)  I paired it with a little gift box that is splattered with the Pigment Powder in Gold.  My card is for a friend with a birthday coming up, and I am for ONCE ahead of the game.  She loves stars, so it was a perfect launching point to use the E-Z Stars Runner Refillable! I found the coordinating paper and thought I could pull that in as well.  

I just love how the sentiment turned out! I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink, rubbed the  Pigment Powder in Gold over it and WOW.  SO cool.  I cant wait to try the other colors as well. 


For my card base, I added a strip of stars using the E-Z Stars Runner Refillable.  

Using her Pigment Powder in Gold, I sprinkled it over the adhesive stars.  Repeat as you add more stars.  I also used the Pigment Powder in Blue as well on a few.

Another great use for the Pigments- to add a bit of depth to my little treat box, I mixed some of the Gold Pigment Powder with water, and splattered it on top of the box lid.  This creates a great sparkly shine. ;)  *I did seal with a fixative to avoid it from smearing or rubbing off.

I love the size of these Dodz™ XL!  I rolled the natural colored Canvas Ribbon like a cigar, and then twisted it into itself to make a little flower. I adhered it (and the straggler canvas pieces for extra dimension also)  to the Dodz XL and then to my card.
