This was fun to do and I pulled out all the guns for it. Twinkling H2o's, gold embossing, stickles, I guess if this card was a pizza we would call it "The Works"!
Here is a link to the picture for this inspiration challenge. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...p;d=1155382635
The jewelry box reminded me of a Menorah my grandparents had, and the detail and sparkle of the Hanukkah lights seemed perfect for this challenge!
You may have noticed in my gallery Ilike to keep things busy in my cards so I this is a showcase for my favorite techniques.
I stamped print pattern in gold craft ink and clear embossed. I then painted the white diamonds with twinkling H2O's. I edged in gold leaf pen, stickled the candles with yellow though you cannot tell from the phot, and dotted between each diamond with gold leaf then stickles.
I stamped 3 dreidles on shrink plastic, using staz on ink. I used gold cord to string them together and embellish the bottom of the Menorah.
The Menorah and greeting were also stamped in gold and embossed, they on watercolor paper. Thanks for looking and thanks for a fun challenge!!
