Card #44 – Magical stars

This was never supposed to turn into a card. When I ended up with star shaped stencils while die cutting for the previous card and with all my Distress inks out, I decided to stencil some with inks I rarely use. It went on and I created a piece with many multi-coloured starts overlapping one another. It looked bright and beautiful, but I did not have a sentiment that went well.


A day later, I stumbled upon this sentiment from Lawn Fawn®’s  Fairy friends 🙂  To add some more magic, I die cut the star with the pierced border, gave it a gold coating with Perfect Pearls and flicked some on to the rest of the background. Added a small shaker element using some acetate from package and sequins. Chose to stamp the sentiment on to velum paper to tone down the colors around it. Now, it looked magical!!

With all the colors appearing unintentionally on my cards, I guess spring is not too far! 😀

Supplies used:

1. 110 lb Neena® Bright White Card stock paper

2. Tim Holtz® Distress inks – Chipped Sapphire, Seedless preserve, Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon, Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Pine Needles

3. Clear stamps from Lawn Fawn® (Fairy friends)

4. Perfect Gold from Perfect Pearls Ranger®
