Whew! Try saying that three times fast! While I love every color of Glimmer Glam, Golden Goddess is quickly becoming a favorite! I find myself reaching for it again and again to add bits of gold to all sorts of projects.
For this project, I began with a Chip Tile that I had colored with a base coat of Banana Pudding Chalkboard Mist and then topped with a coat of Meadow Green. After the mists were dry, I sanded the raised surfaces for a distressed effect. I stamped the wonderful key stamp from the Timeless Romance stamp set in Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink. I embossed the design with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powders in Vintage Photo.
To give the key a touch of color, I used a paint brush to brush on Glimmer Glam Golden Goddess over the embossed design.
The two blended perfectly to create a very aged looking gold key.
After embossing and painting the key design, I decided I wanted a bit more intensity in the green background. I didn't want to spray over my work and change it so I created a mask for the stamped design. I stamped the image onto a piece of Masking Magic and cut it out.
I stuck the mask in place (it has a sticky back) and then added another layer of color (English Ivy).
I found glitter stickers in my stash that were the perfect size and texture for my project. Unfortunately, they were silver. Not a problem, I brushed on Golden Goddess Glimmer Glam and ended up with letter stickers that were a perfect match to my stamped image!
I rounded out the Glimmer Glam touches by painting a pearl stick pin and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Muse Token to match. Glimmer Glam adheres nicely to the metal and stays very sheer so that variations in the metal color and texture still show through. I finished out the piece with Distress ink around the edges as well as a bit of ribbon scrap that was "aged" with a few quick mists of Vanilla Breeze Glimmer Mists.
The combination of Glimmer Mists, Glimmer Glam, and Distress products come together for a delightful vintage result.
