Glitter and Sparkle

Morning, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We have another fabulous challenge for you over at the Love to Create Challenge Blog where the theme is Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes.
I began by brayering DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Green Gold across the background of the card, using only a light touch with the brayer so that some white areas were still visible.  I then brayered touches of Metallic Gold Fluid Acrylic over the first colour.  PanPastel Rich Gold has been applied around the edges of the card.
I die cut two baubles from scrap card and then placed the die cut pieces onto the background and then applied Permanent Red Shade around the die cut pieces.
I stamped the tree from Tim Holtz Halftone Christmas set into the centre of the bauble and added stencilled stars using PanPastel Permanent Red Shade.
I echoed the same stamping in the smaller bauble and to add definition, I applied Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel around the edges of each bauble. I also added Remnant Rubs for added interest along with delicate splatters of Metallic Gold Fluid Acrylic.
I added scratch lines to the background using an old credit card and DecoArt Fluid Arylic Paint and added 25, applying Permanent Red Shade PanPastel over a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil. I also included coordinated twine and mirrored stars for added interest.

Thanks so much for stoppping by. Tracy x x
