Seeing Stars

Good morning and happy Friday! I'm back today sharing my second card for the Country View Crafts 'Stars' challenge.

I started by making my background and some tags with Distress Inks and Oxides

I then cut a stencil from acetate using various sizes of stars.

I always put masking tape around my home made stencils so that it gives me a bit more room to play with (and they are easier to find as acetate can be a bit tricky!)

I just gessoed through the stencils on my background and tags.

Then added some text with a stampotique stamp and some white embossing powder.

These are Trish Lattimer stamps that I've coloured and paper pieced.
And my favourite Paper Artsy 'happy birthday' stamp. You see this scrap was just the right size phew!.

Now it was just down to putting it all together.

Until I made another project that involved a Tim Holtz die for cutting out a starry background. I thought that the left over stars looked perfect here.

My paper pieced girls.

I hope that you like it, and that you also join in with our challenge. Remember there is a £20 voucher to be won to spend in the store.
I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge which is Stars.
Have a very happy weekend, and thanks very much for looking x

  4. Gorgeous, Sue! I recognised Trish Latimer's girls immediately! Love how you used the stencilled background to cut several layers to build up the design. And you reminded me of adding real sewing too...

  5. Sue, your card is so artsy and delightful! Yes, the little stars from Tim's Swirling Stars die make me happy too! I'm in awe of your paper piecing, so well done! Totally eye-candy! xoxo

  6. I love art that just kind of "evolves" as you go along, and this seems to be one of those! Love it, Sue!

  7. The paper pieced dolls are just adorable and I am in love with the gorgeous backgrounds you created. Hugs, Anne xx

  8. Love this Sue :)

    Hope you had a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend.

    All the best Jan
