Pretty in Glitter at Divas by Design

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are having a wonderful week so far.

Today I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and this week the theme is


So keeping with my Festive Decor makes for my upcoming Christmas Craft Fayres here's what I did:

And here's how I did it:

I started by painting the MDF bauble with Indigo Blu 'Frosty Sky' Acrylic Paint and then dry brushed a little White Gesso over the top.
When it was completely dry I stamped the snowflakes from the LOTV Christmas Icons set all over using Perfect Medium and then heat embossed with True White EP.
I die cut two small Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament 2011 and inked with Weathered Wood Distress Ink whilst still in the die and then over-stamped the Swirly Tree Image from the LOTV Christmas Icons set using the same ink.
When dry I added picked out some detail with a Quickie Glue pen and sprinkled with Glamour Dust.
I also added glue around the edge of the MDF bauble and dipped it in Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels and sprinkled with Glamour Dust for some extra sparkle :o)
Finishing off with a couple of teeny silver cord bows and a stamped sentiment.
It really is 'blingalicious' IRL.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to see the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of my DT buddies.

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for popping by today and for all your continued support.

Have a fabulous day.
