AIR16 Nighty Night Challenge

I made the backgrounds posted in the previous post and this card for my AIR16 Nighty-Night Challenge (Pillow-Top Background Technique). I learned this technique from Gina K.’s video tutorial on Stamp TV.
Here’s a link to the challenge thread: You'll find a link to Gina K's video and lots of tips from participants in the discussion thread.

The color of the background is actually a softer version of the green that is seen in the leaves. It didn't photograph well.

4 ¼” x 5 ½”
Card base and mat – Bazzill cardstock, Red Devil

Pillow-Top Technique
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80-lb. Cardstock
Memories Ink, Soft Sage (For Hero Arts Shadow Stamps)

Canson 90-lb. Cold-Press Watercolor Paper
Just Rite sentiment – Christmas Antique Labels One
Versafine Ink – Olympia Green
Darice brass stencil – Xmas Bells/Bow, 1020-63
Kaleidacolor Ink Pads – The red is a mixture of the darkest colors in the Tomato Vine and Desert Pink pads. The bells are colored with a mixture of a lavender and a grayish color.
Wink of Stella – Clear

I stenciled in the color first, and then I paste embossed.
I added glitter to the wet paste, but the paste was on the dry side, and the glitter didn’t stick. (I also brushed off the excess before the paste was completely dry. That might have had something to do with it’s not sticking. I used clear Wink of Stella once the paste was completely dry.
