Sparkle and Shine

Gosh! It's October already! Where's the time going?! So a new month means a new challenge at Country View Challenges and this month it's Sparkle and Shine. I don't really do much with sparkle or shine usually so I was really challenged! 
For my first project this month I made a tag using metallic glaze paint on the balloons (the centre from a Clare Lloyd stamp) which is quite difficult to photograph!!
For added shine I added glossy accents on the eyes and clear embossing paste at the bottom of the tag. On the chap's heart I added glossy accents and then sprinkled a little distress glitter.
I couldn't quite stop there! I made a Christmas tag with many of the same techniques and ideas.
The top of each bauble was stamped and cut out again and then I added glossy accents for a super shine. 
I hope you like my interpretation of Sparkle and Shine - there's some really amazing projects by my team mates so do pop over and see!
