Let the lanterns shine brightly

Good evening, morning or afternoon wherever you are in the world

This was quite painstakingly  time consuming as I had no idea where it was going

The other day I was playing with Roland gel press (Lavinia) and achieved the larger circle using elements olive, lime punch and blue lagoon with water and mica splats (well that was the first mistake trying to stamp over mica minerals lol)

I then used the circle frame from the sticker stencils set number 5 (Lavinia)

I used olive and mulberry elements to make a deeper circle within the circle

Nocturne and shady lane Versafine clair for stamping

The stamps I used are Wild pine, Eve, Felicity, mini fairy lantern, Fairy lantern set, Christmas greetings and winter magic

Holographic glitter

Black and silver glitter gel pens

green sharpie for the edge

Kuretake pens green, red and orange

Lime green stickles.

Circle mask for spotlight

I used silver gel pen over the sentiments so it looked like a shadow from the black stamping. 

Yellow Sheena Douglas sparkle pen over the lanterns

Quite difficult to photograph to catch the glitter just right so apologise for the pic

Thank you for visiting me I appreciate it
