Glittery Gold stripes

Hi crafters. I was playing in order to create a background for this card and it turned out differently to what I was expecting. I took some black paper and put random strips of post it paper across it. I mixed some gold acrylic paint with fine gold glitter and sponged and pressed it in a swiping motion along the stripes. The glitter seemed to align flat and shiny. When I did my recent card with silver the paint obscured the glitter a lot. Maybe I had a higher glitter to paint ratio here. It may also be that this fine glitter is flat rather than gritty. I liked the look of these distressed but very shiny stripes. I sprayed the piece with fixative to help hold the glitter, though very little seemed to be loose. I backed the paper with black fun foam and adhered it to a black card base. The you rock sentiment (Paper Smooches die) was leftover from this card and has black fun foam behind it.

I am entering this card in the Simon says Stamp Stamptember Paper Smooches collaboration challenge.
