For Polly's How Many Carats? MIXed media challenge.
I started by pulling out my favourite diamond stencil, spreading modelling paste through it and then sprinkling with mostly turquoise Brusho, a hint of red and leaf green, and some gold powder.
When dry, I trimmed the bottom and added a scalloped border that was on my desk along the top for definition. I was going for a jewellery look - (and ended up with something just as hard to photograph) - the foliage is cut from my tomato paste tubes, and the little "crystal" flowers are holographic card layered onto black, with Nuvo Drops for the centres. I also added black and white Nuvo Drops into the centres of some of the diamonds. Added a sentiment cut from glitter card and called it done.

What you do with tomato tubes is just remarkable.
Hmm...I never heard of using brushos like that. New idea for me!
You know I zeroed in on the holo flowers LOL. Once a sparkle junkie...
small but definitely there!
