Daring Carmakers-Plastic Fantastic!!!

I did curse when I saw the dare for this week over at Daring Cardmakers. All of the stuff I could have used had been collected about half an hour before the dare was posted. So all that was in the bag we keep in the kitchen was a small plastic bag from some embellishments I had opened last night.
It's taken me all day to figure out what to do with it and this is what I ended up with.
Ages ago I saw a technique somewhere where you use hair gel inside a plastic bag and then add glitter and stuff........no hair gel so I used some waterless hand cleaner that is like a gel. Added a mix of glitter, micro beads and tiny confetti stars and swooshed it about a bit.
The frame was stamped and chalked then embellished with silver stars and a couple of silver blocks made from mirror card bashed with a steak hammer......an idea picked up from a Suze Weinburg video on You Tube.
Black outlines are peeloffs and the star borders are done with a Fiskars plier punch.
Quite happy with the outcome as it is very different to some of my earlier ideas for this dare.
If you have never joined in with the dares you really should have a go.......it is such fun and really makes you think.
Thanks for looking.
