DIY Tea light holder

DIY Tea light holder 

Hi Friends

I made some Tea light holders with DecoArt Americana Neon Lights paints in Peach Punch,  Radiant Yellow and Pink Explosion 
DIY Tea light holder 

and copper and silver leaf,leafing size and soft flat brushes to apply leaf from Itsy Bitsy .........

I made this topper flower using layers of book papers, doilies and punched circles , the layers were colored using diluted neon colors , scrunched up and fixed with a brad and then a decorative shiny piece of bling , finally brushed a thin layer of leafing size on the edges and added Mont Marte copper leaf .....

I assembled and glued the MDF Tea light holder and added a thin layer of Gesso first and then brushed all the three shades of Neon paints randomly. let dry and brush a very thin layer of Leafing size ( which is a very thin and very tacky glue for adding Metallic leaf to different surfaces) . leave for at least 20-30 minutes and then randomly apply copper and silver leaf  an all sides .........I used the leaf only in certain places and kept a distressed look ........

Isn't it amazing ........

A very Happy Diwali dear friends !!!

Some Positive Affirmations

Hi Friends 
I created some cards for a friend who was in need of  a bit of support and positive affirmations ......

I have made this card with the Copper Luxury stack. It has beautiful double-sided paper in water color patterns and mint and copper foiled designs. I have cut and torn the pattern papers in layers on the card, added some enamel dots to finish .......shape: Rectangle and the sentiment is also from the same stack. 

I have made this 
card  with the Blue China stack from DCWV. It has beautiful double-sided paper and 12x12 die-cut sheets in wonderful designs.

I layered pattern paper and die cut sheets , cut the sentiment from the same stack with an oval die and created an oval frame from gold metallic sheet, added some pearl stickers and flowers to the frame. linking this card to DCWV and  Unstampabelleschallenges-Tic-tac-toeusing flowers , die-cuts , stickers

I am linking these cards to October  DCWV Stack-o-holic Challenge  using the sketch below
