I’ve been playing around with some of the remnants of my Glimmer Mists, using up the ones with very little ink left in them and this is one of the results.

The bigger white circles are white embossed Hero Arts Dot stamps and I scattered a bit of gold embossing powder over it, heating from the bottom, then edged with Krylon pen, which was also gold embossed.

The photo is a little closer to the colours and shows the glimmer a little.

I’m definitely enjoying rediscovering my Paperartsy stamps at the moment.

I’m linking this to the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, which is ‘Show your handmade backgrounds.’
