Day 30 of the 30 Days of Christmas

The new Celestial Dangles stamp is incredibly versatile -- I used it in the last issue of Inkspirations with Gelatos, and today I am using it with sprays. 

Ao make this card:
Stamp the Celestial Dangles image on plain cardstock using dark blue ink (I used Stormy Sky Distress Ink).

Spray the background with 2 - 3 Colors of Art AnthologyColorations Sprays. I used Juicy, Waimea Bay, and Timeless. 

To add a gold shimmer to the entire background, I spritzed it generously with Gilded Glitz Fairy Dust Spray.  It adds a gold sheen to the entire background. 

Use a stamp positioner to stamp the  Magic of Christmas stamp along the bottom of the image. Color the dangles with Gold Smoosh Ink to highlight them.

This  card has amazing shimmer! It is so hard to see in the picture, but gorgeous in person.
