{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - Metallics }

Hello and welcome to another Impression Obsession DT challenge. We have challenges every other week - DETAILS HERE - if you play you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

Challenge: All that glistens is not (only) gold --- color challenge... metallics
I wasn't sure how to go with this challenge and then I remembered I had this box of old stuff. In it I found Metallic Foil  paper in all different colors. I can't remember when I bought that.  This might be the first time using it.

 I used Swirl Trees (CL196) stamp set for my card. The base is a strip of Tinsel & Twig from The Girls' Paperie and the I added my foil paper. If you look really close I dry  embossed the foil paper with Cover-a-card Music stamp (CC029). I laid the paper on top of the rubber stamp and rubbed with my bone folder.

 For the ribbon I used a piece of fabric and then I tied a little jingle bell with twine. After I stamped the trees, I cut them out. I used a glue pen to trace the swirls in the tree and applied silver glitter. I did the same thing with the stars.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designers' blogs for inspiration!
