Addicted to CAS Challenge #39

Hello everyone - welcome to another challenge at Addicted to CAS.  Our hostess is the very talented Vicki of All I do is Stamp.  The code word she has chosen for you is:

Our Sponsor for this challenge is:

They will provide 3 images for the DT to play with and donate 3 images to our challenge winner. 

Please visit our challenge blog:

And we have Darnell (djkardkreations) joining us again this week as Guest Designer.  Please check out Darnell's texture card - amazing!  Thanks Darnell, for joining us this month - it's been great!! 

This code word could be taken in many directions but I was itching to use a new stencil I had sitting on my desk called Flappers by and some of their glitter frosting paste which is very quick drying - about 5 minutes.  On top of the frosting paste I added a layer of Golden Glass Bead Gel having seen it used to great effect on Loll's blog.

Once it was all dry I matted the image onto a black mat and added the sentiment which was computer generated.  The base card was run through my Big Shot in  a Cuttlebug Wicker Weave embossing folder.  So that gives two distinct textures.  Here's a close up of the frosting paste and glass bead gel.

Please pop on over to the Addicted to CAS blog to see what the other DT have been up to.  We're looking forward to visiting you to see your lovely creations.
