Starlights, Texture Paste & Glitter

Good morning, happy Monday. Thanks to everyone for all the kind words about the Christmas party classes, if you missed the photos from last Friday, you can see them HERE.

We're carrying on the Starlights theme this month, because we love them so much & for my project today I also used;

I wanted a random background so I applied Dried Rose & Antique Pink Starlights to white Super Smooth card as you would apply Distress inks, with a circular blending tool & foam, I made sure to work the paint well into the foam & built up the layers of colour, adding a little Silver here & there.

When the background was dry, I applied the translucent paste through the stencil, removed the stencil & sprinkled Crystal Glitter on top, followed by tiny amounts of gold embossing powder. I set the card aside to dry overnight.

The next day I heat the embossing powder & brushed off the excess glitter.

I painted white Super Smooth with Dried Rose Starlights & another piece with a mix of Rich Gold & Platinum, then die cut the pieces with a scallop edged circle die, the Leane Creatief Multi Flower die & the Sue Wilson Trailing Ivy .

I finished the card with some matting & layering onto a 7x7 white card blank, clear adhesive gems & the Stampendous Merry Christmas, stamped with Versamark & heat set with Gold EP.
