Here's the second of the cards inspired by the photo in Monday's post (scroll down to the next post if you'd like to see the original photo and first card).
I went long and thin for the card base on this one to echo the shape of the steps and then used punched circles to represent the baubles - some are heat embossed with a backgrounder stamp and gold powder, some coated in crackle paint and others embossed in a Cuttlebug folder and then treated with Rub n Buff to give them a richer finish.
Ruched silk ribbon and a sprinkling of pearls keep the opulent mood going and provide more textural interest.
It was a bit of a nightmare to photograph this one with the reflective surfaces and textures but I think you get the idea!
