All sparkly and bright...

... not that the photos show it that well which makes me quite dissappointed especially as I enhanced the lighting on photoshop too.

I won this christmas tree stamp last year in a candy and as it was close to christmas never got around to using it so I decided to rectify that. In my mind I had just how it would look and it's not far off all spakly and glittery, told you they were rubbish photos. I thought as there seems to be an abundance of glittery and shiney challenges around it would be perfect and I added loads of bling in the form of stickles and glitter gel pens and moonglow embossing powders, please believe me it is true.

I embossed with moonglow obsidian emerald powder then coloured with pine and holly promarkers. Have to admit the embossing dulled where I went over it but tghat was rectified with a little stazon cleaner on a paper towel and a wee rub over the embossing, sparkly once again. The baubles and star I coloured withsakura glaze pens, got to love their shine. Then it was holly sticles to add glitter shadow under the baubles and stardust stickles for the lights.

I added a silver razzle embossed sentiment from LOTV and some ribbon to another gold pearlised card, I know its another clean and simple design but with complex and stunning images I don't think you need much more do you?
