Today I am sharing two sparkly goodies that I created a while ago, but I just love them and they show two techniques for you!

First is the beautiful Maple branch (LJ906) stencil that you may have seen on some of the other blogs this month.  This was done in the double glitter technique using Art Glitter Rock Moss Microfine glitter in all the stencil openings, then while the stencil was still in place, I used stencil brushes and ink pads to color the image. The microfine glitter is pretty easy to stencil over. The background was covered with Crystal Ultrafine glitter.

The second card was created by first paste embossing the  Rooster stencil (LG732) with Metallic Gold Embossing Paste on black cardstock, removing the stencil (place in water for cleaning later), and sprinkling the whole image with True Red Ultrafine Opaque glitter, tap off the excess glitter and let the image dry thoroughly. When dry, use an x-acto knife to scrape away the glitter in some of the areas to expose the gold paste again. Cut out the rooster and mount him on decorative papers.

I hope you have enjoyed our month of Awesome in Autumn and will consider joining our fun! Now head on over to the other team member blogs to check out their creations!

Happy Creating,

Love the color and shading on your Maple Branch card, and the punch of sparkly color on your rooster card!
