I've been at the Sparkle Medium again, this time to make a Christmas card to pop aside for the festive season. Apologies for the dodgy photos, the acetate front on this card was a nightmare to photograph, and the glitter looks so much more sparkly in reality.
To start with, I used the stencil and black gesso to add a black silhouette image to the printed backing paper. I then stenciled the same scene with silver Sparkle Medium onto acetate, and then, once both pieces were dry, overlaid the acetate piece, offsetting it slightly to give a shadow effect. The two pieces were stuck together with double sided tape down one side, I used some ribbon to cover the join and embellished with a bow and some gems.
