I'm so happy to be Jo's Guest Elf at the Christmas Kickstart Challenge. The theme is right up my alley: Glitter, Sparkle & Shine! I began by using Jennifer McGuire's stencil wreath technique.
The MFT stencil reminded me of retro Christmas ornaments. I used Distress Inks barn door & worn lipstick through the stencil & blended on a scrap I die cut with a circle. Fell in love with the MFT Joy die when a friend used it on the Christmas card she sent to me. I've actually had it in my stash for over a year & finally used it!
I stacked several die cuts & then covered the top one with Nuvo Silver Moondust Glitter Drops. I can't seem to make drops with this product, but it works great used like Stickles & has tons of sparkle. The little sentiment strip is from Winnie & Walter's In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals. Hope you'll head over to the challenge blog & see what inspiration Jo has for you. Why not add a Christmas card to your stash & join in the challenge?
