Background Stripe..I added the glitter to the translucent paste and then applied to the stencil rather than glitter after the paste is applied! Love the sparkle!

Lock and key were paste embossed with black glossy paste then various glitters sprinkled over the wet paste.

Image behind the lock was stamped then I used Stampee Products to sticky emboss and add foil!
Hapy Creating...and good luck
