i particularly love adding glitter embossing paste to ornaments i've painted with color burst, just because the range of colors and contrasts you can get is so awesome. in this case i've also outlined the embossing paste patterns to make them stand out even more. i'm pretty sure you won't be seeing that technique again in conjunction with the super-detailed damask pattern stencil anytime soon because it was fairly tedious to do. but it looks good, so i'm callin' it a win, lol!
it's a "fifth saturday" at sketch saturday, which means we could choose any past sketch between #215 and #396; so i went with #251:
