Shimmer and Shine

Good Morning, and happy Wednesday. Today the lovely Kathi has chosen the theme for the latest Stampotique challenge. Here's what she has to say.
My spirit animal must be a magpie as I am attracted to all things that shine, shimmer, or glitter. My challenge for you is to create a project that literally shines! 
If this had been the challenge a year ago I would have reached straight for the glitter pot, but I don't seem to be using it as much as I used to. This time I went for my shimmery paints.
I started with a layer of DecoArt black gesso, this is fab, one coat really is all that you need.
The shimmery paints are a combination of Pebeo, and Silks.
Skull Moon has been stamped onto black card, then painted in gold, silver and white.
Spiraling Out of Control, has been stamped in paint, and the stars from Design Cube have been embossed in white.
Girl With Heart Purse and Bowtie have been stamped and coloured with Silks, and I Feel Happy Inside seemed the right sentiment to finish it all off.
So that's another page done in my chippie album - only 3 left to go now!
Hope you join in with our challenge and release your inner magpie.
I'm also entering this into the That's Crafty challenge which is All That Glitters, and the Love2Create anything goes challenge.
I won't be around for the next couple of weeks 'cos I'll soon be off on my Summer holidays, but I promise to come visiting (via the computer - I'll not be knocking on you door) when I get back.
Thanks very much for looking and enjoy your week x
