Reflections!!

How are you all doing?  I have been a little MIA as my DH took some time off last week and being Thanksgiving, we did some much needed things around the house!  Well anyway, I can now get back to playing a bit!  That lovely Linda from Studio L-3 has us opening our "Tim" books to page 55, for lesson #30 of the CC2 - Reflective Imagery!  This is not a favorite of mine as I think I pretty much stink at this!  I don't know if it is the images I chose or that I do something wrong, but this is the best I have ever come up with!  Now it is very hard to capture the picture with all the shimmery effects, but it is there.  The lighting was not so great as it was overcast and I also took this much later in the day!  I am also linking this up to Lisa's Bloggers Challenge, "Countdown to Christmas."

We can't tell you about the technique, but I can tell you that I edged the fragment with gold embossing powder.  The background was embossed with Tim's Damask EF and highlighted in Gold EP, as was the ticket!  The lace trim was dyed with the Bronze Metallic stain.  All paper edges were highlighted with the Metallic stain - so cool those are! 

Hope you all are having a great week and getting ready for Christmas.  The plan is to pull out more decorations compared to the last few years, so I need to get cracking!  Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Terry, this is stunning! And absolutely appears to be as antique as a gold-leaf card from the 1920s!

Wonderful!
