Sprinkles and Sparkles

Look at those pretty sparkles -just makes me want to touch it.

As soon as I saw the branch in this month's inspiration kit I knew I would be dangling ornaments from it. After all it is a Christmas Kit - it would be a shame not to.

To dress up my branch I applied a layer of Shimmer paint from Stampin Up! While the paint was still wet I sprinkled a generous layer of chunky glitter in silver. Shimmery and sparkly -what's not to love.

Here is the finished layout using my Counterfeit Kit for January. 

When I started using the kit I ended up swapping out the white Pebbles alphabet for some red shiny Thickers. They worked much better with the cream based papers and it was nice to see them used. They had been sitting in my stash unloved for far too long.

The only other extra item on this page is some aqua washi tape (this tape found its way on to quite a few layouts -let's call it my add-on).

Any questions about the layout feel free to leave a comment and I will answer as soon as I can.

Hope you are having fun with your kit this month too.

Happy Scrapping
