Mixed Media Christmas card

Hello :)
It's Friday and time for a new Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge!
This week we would like you to share projects which feature


Our lovely sponsors this week are Crafty Sentiments Designs who are offering one randomly selected winner 3 digital stamps from their fabulous collection.
As always there is gorgeous inspiration from the fabulous DT girls too!
Hop over HERE for all the details.

Inspired by Finnabair I made 4 cards playing with beads, buttons, paint, ink and glitter.

I first added some torn book paper, buttons, beads, gems and a bottle cap to a piece of cardstock.
I then covered the whole piece with Gesso.

I really wanted to keep the white space on the card so instead of spraying the ink I used a paint brush to add it where I wanted it. This gave me much more control.
I used Maya Gold in Gold and  Dylusions Post box red and black.

When it was dry I added a mix of ultra fine glitter and some chunky gold glitter.

To finish I added a little Inca Gold in gold with a sponge over some of the raised areas.

I'll be back soon with my second card using this technique soon :)
Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend!
