Shimmery Merry & Bright

Happy Friday everyone!  I am back with a tag for Linda's (The Funkie Junkie) Twelve Tags of Christmas.  This is week #5 and Linda's tag uses the cool new Tim Holtz Scribbles tree dies and stamps. 

I had neither so I wanted to see if I could create my own glittery scribble trees using glue and glitter.  It took me a while to find a glue that was loose enough in the bottle to allow me the ability to draw a scribbly tree.  It still took a few tries to even get something that I thought was fun.

I used the orange and pink and gold combo because I was using the color palette from the current Words and Paintery challenge.  What  fun color combo and not something I would have put together with the touch of gold.

I started with a mix of the new Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink and the Festive Berries which was misted with a gold spray.  I dragged my paper through the colors to get a smattering of colors on the background.

Then it was a matter of trying to draw my trees and covering them with Stampendous Gold Ultra Fine Glitter. I tried a chunkier glitter but the trees were too heavy.   I then stamped with The Tuskineko Delicata Gold Ink the Memory Box Twelve Days of Christmas music stamp randomly over the background.  I finished with a sky full of stars courtesy of Memory Box stencil and Wendy Vecchi's gold embossing paste.  I sprinkled the same glitter over the surface. 

The words are Sizzix and are coated in Stampendous ultra fine pink glitter.

Linda's Challenge is hosted by her Funkie Junkie Boutique.
