Sparkle and Shine

Good evening and happy Saturday. I'm lucky enough to be guest designer this month for the Happy Little Stampers ATC challenge. This challenge this month is... drum roll please

Here's what I've made.

 I started by making a gelli print background with lots of paint and stencils, the stamped with the Mix Mashed plate. I love these circles (I'm really into circles at the moment)
 Then I made some shrink plastic flowers with the Doodled Flowers plate, and coloured them with Posca pens. I coloured them before I shrunk the plastic as I wanted the colour to be really intense.
 The lovely sparkle is coming from DecoArt's Glamour Dust Paint. This is amazing stuff, it goes on so nicely then dries to an amazing sparkle.
 And the words are Tim Holtz stickers - where would we be without his pearls of wisdom?

These were great fun to make, thank you so much Happy Little Stampers for having me.
Have a lovely day, and thanks very much for looking xx
