Merry Monday Challenge #237 - Shimmer or Sparkle.
I actually made two this colour and two with green under the glass bead gel with gold stars and glitter strip at the bottom.
This is my favourite colour combo of the two cards. Evergreen Bough Distress ink was sponged over top of the tree stencil onto regular card stock. I washed the stencil, dried and taped it back over top, lining up the tree image. A layer of Glass Bead gel was added over top using a palette knife. This gel is amazing. The sparkle you get from it can not be shown in a photo. Very beautiful.
I have a close-up below that shows a bit more detail of the sparkle ...
I'm working on making multiples of cards so that I build my Christmas card stash throughout the year. Hopefully I'll have enough cards when it's time to mail them out in December! :)
