Pilin' on more Paint

A friend from High School recently lost his mother, and I was inspired to make this card.

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Paint, so I started by painted the outer edges with a sparkly black paint. Then I inked the middle with blue inks, adding texture & blending with a wet wipe. I added some more black paint & several colors/kinds of embossing powders. The sentiment (Verve) is heat-embossed in neon yellow. The star shaker is filled with gold stars and backed with a neon yellow paper. I colored a black-an-white baker's twine with my fluorescent yellow Copic maker.
