Golden stars and sequins

Hi, hope you're enjoying your weekend, or at least getting close to doing so!

These stars are diecut  from metal sheet and coloured with alcohol inks.
(gold metallic,caramel, butterscotch and pitch black)
I scored some lines to create a panel, added some sequins and a sentiment sticker.

I definitely struggle with photographing shiny surfaces, here's a laid back view.

I'm linking up to the challenges at Addicted to CAS
where the theme is gold.
At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is to make it sparkle.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

So CAS , so perfect! I love the sparkle from the stars (metal sheet and alcohol inks--AWESOME!) and the score lines are lovely additions with your design! So glad that you join the fun over Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

The alcholhal inks are so shimmery and love the gleam of the metal. I have never tried that...I think it is beautiful!
