OPH: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...
How I wonder what your are...
We all know the classic nursery rhyme chant.
Here is a chance to let YOUR star shine!
This weeks prompt is anything your Muse desires that includes a star.

I made a decoration for the Christmas Tree.
I started with a plain-jane Chipboard Star. The layered the life out of it!
I inked it with a few shades of yellow, then glimmer misted it all yellow/gold.
Then I used one of the big swirly Fancy Pants stamps and gold ink, covered it in Gold embossing powder and heated.
Then I covered the whole Star in clear ink and Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) and heated that.
Next I stamped the same stamp in the other direction in silver, covered it in both glitter and Silver embossing powder and heated.
Then another layer of clear ink and UTEE, heated.
I used 3D Crystal Lacquer around the edges, covered in UTEE and heated.
I love doing this, the 3D-CL bubbles a bit and makes some pretty cool extra texture.
Then I used the 3D-CL down 1 edge, covered in clear Micro-Beads and heated (more cool bubbling).
Last I brushed more 3D-CL on and glittered that.
I heated 1 last time to seal it all in.
It's hard to see in the pictures but the layers are all there,
floating on top of each other and it's very sparkly!
