I'm confused!! I'm not sure if this is October or November's  sketch challenge! Anyway here it is! Quite a different one this time dreamed up for us by our own Jane Gill. I started by using the holly mask to create the black background using Galaxy Gold which I then cut in half & punched the half circles in the appropriate places.
Next I turned my attention to the Dreamweaver stencils & I decided to use the "double glitter technique".Cut a piece of card & a piece of double sized adhesive sheet to approximately the same size as the stencil -I used a larger strip here as I wanted it to go right across the card blank & use the  2 stencils side by side. Peel off one side of the sheet & attach to the card. Use a natural soap to rub over the back of the stencil  -this makes it easier to remove from the sticky sheet. Peel off the other side from the sheet & place the stencils over the top. Add ultra fine gold glitter & shake off excess. Carefully remove the stencil & cover the remaining sticky surface with Crystal glitter. Replace the clean stencil & add some colour using inkpads & a 1/8" stencil brush.
I attached the black holly  background with 3D foam tape to raise it slightly off the card blank. I added a little twist of black ribbon to the central image before attaching to the card. To finish add a strip of black satin stripe ribbon.
