Shine Bright Like A Diamond

Here we come with a new SSS Monday Challenge called 

Shine Bright Like A Diamond

We'd like to see some glitter and shine on your projects. 
This week we showcase Tim Holtz products! 
We're sure you have at least one of them so find it and use in your project. 

As always there is a chance to win a $50 voucher and spend it 
at the greatest one stop SSS Store! 

I have to say I am absolutely in love with this amazing Dashing Deer! 
He's cute and really big and playing with giving him life is so much fun!
This card is very shiny when you look at it in the light, 
here below there are some steps I took to make this project. 
Have fun! 

First I took a craft solid cardstock and applied a good amount of Grit Paste 
mixed with Ground Espresso Distress Stain, I put it through the 
Extra Large Dots Stencil which I really love and use a lot! 
I loved the result it gave on my card.
Having still the stencil placed, I applied some Opal Magic Violet-Gold 
Acrylic Paint to give the first layer of a golden shine.
 I let it all dry. When it was still a little bit wet, I sprinkled the dots with Enchanted Gold and Clear Embossing Powders and heated all the sufrace. 
That was the second layer of shine. 
After that I put randomly Ground Espresso an Antique Linen Distress Paints.
To get the bacground brighter I sprayed it with Picket Fence Distress Stain. 

My lovely Deer was cut out from a craft cardstock which gave him 
a first color (Thank you, Emma!) I just pop it up with Antique Linen 
and Ground Espresso Distress Paints and the edges were marked 
with Distress Crayons. The Antlers were moisted with Embossing Ink 
and sprinkled with Chestnut Embossing Powder. 
Finally I put the eye with Black Nuvo Crystal Drops and gave him 
a mini bell tied around his neck. I really LOVE him!

The Trees were cut out from a craft paper as well and inked with 
Forest Moss Distress Ink and Distres Crayons with the final touch 
of Opal Magic Violet-Gold Acrylic Paint. 
Finally I added the sentiment from the Frosted Collectables.
