Finished Journal Cover!

This page was originally going to be a bonus page for my 2017 journal, based on the weekly prompts by Nina Ribena on Art Journal Prompts.  However, once it was complete, I felt it made the perfect cover instead!
I covered a piece of mixed media card (18.5cm x 19.5cm) with Black Soot Distress Oxide, gave it a couple of light spritzes of water and dried it thoroughly, to create a night sky.
As the last Sunday of 2017 is New Year's Eve, I decided to use the festive theme of fireworks and looked out my Pyrotechnics stamp set by the Ton.  I went through my collection of embossing powders and picked out a selection of tinsel powders, metallic powders and Pearlustre powders (all by Stampendous).  All the stamping was done in Versamark ink and heat embossed using a different colour each time.  The largest stamp was embossed using Red Metallic, Purple Metallic and Silver Tinsel.
The second smallest image was added in Copper Tinsel, Gold Tinsel and Golden Ocean powders.
The second largest image was added in Azurite and Carnelian Pearlustre powders and the smallest stamp filled a gap in Silver Tinsel.
To finish, the numbers 2017 were chosen (in a matching font) from the Plain Grungeboard Digits and Punctuation set by Tim Holtz, covered in Versamark ink, heat embossed in Silver Tinsel and added at the bottom.  The words 'beautiful', 'memories' and 'from' were added from the Big Chat Sticker book by Tim Holtz.
