Chocolate Baroque challenge 17

Hello again.

Love the new Chocolate Baroque challenge colours, they fitted in very well with a project I was making with an ArtCuts oval bauble shape. Aren't they gorgeous? There are lovely samples on the challenge web site.

I embossed the oval bauble with a lovely turquoise embossing powder I had forgotten I had.
 I put several layers on and then embedded one of the Chocolate Baroque stamps from Exquisite Edges,  into the hot melted embossing powder, to get the impression. Then it was brushed over with gold pigment powder.

 I really like this technique and haven't used it for a long time. Must do some more now.

The background was stamped with VersaMagic,  and brushed over with gold pigment powder.
It was then sprayed with cheap hairspray, to fix it, otherwise you get fingerprints all over your work. I did the same with the bauble.

I covered some tiny hearts with turquoise and gold handmade paper, from ArtCuts and stuck them on.
The Noel was made with some very old letter brads that I found in my stash. Very useful.

Thanks for looking and hope you visit again.
