Crafty Individuals October Challenge

A very quick last minute dash to enter the Crafty Individuals October Challenge with one of my favourite stamps, Jingle Bells.
I made my super shiny background by spritzing metallic paints onto card, letting it dry naturally so the mica shines more, then using a paper distresser around the edges. I stamped out the Jingle Bells in Archival ink, then stamped and added the words with a white background so they were a little clearer to read. Finally I couldn't resist adding some tiny gems for more stars in the night sky.

I layered the stamped card onto some more spritzed card, added a couple of scrap bits at the side, then finished off with some twine a some real jingle bells.
