MIX350 = Confined - confine your artistic actions to a 3" square
I started by die cutting a star from thin chipboard, then placed it on a warm grill on top of a layer of non-stick craft mat then parchment paper. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powders. Once they had melted, I added multi-coloured chunky glitter pieces and tiny star glitter on top. The melted embossing powders hold the glitter in place. To finish it off, I melted UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) on top. I then die cut the star from fun foam and attached it immediately to the encrusted jewel star to give it a bit more body so that it wouldn't bend and crack.
I used a star embossing folder for the background, bordered it with a frame cut from gold shimmer cs, added a heat embossed sentiment, and hung the star with fine gold thread from the frame.

Every time I read one of your descriptions like this for the encrusted jewels, I keep meaning to try it. Your star is just spectacular, especially with all the little tiny stars added in to the embossing.
