No Poinsettias...Christmas Stars Instead

fredag 15 juli 2016

Hello friends!
Today I have a card for Muse:Christmas Visions challenge where super talanted Chriss Blagrave is our muse again. But since I do not own any poinsettia stamp or larger die, I had to look for something different and the choice fell on a Christmas star stamp from Inkido.

Red Christmas stars ... is it wise? Don´t know, but I wanted to keep the colors and design so it must go. I stamped and masked the star several times and heat embossed them with Aged Gold from Stampendous, which is a thicker embossing powder that I like. This time I used watercolors and the sentiment is made with a Marianne Design die CR1327. To balance the card and give it a little more bling, I added some gold sequins.
Thanks for your visit, have a nice Friday!
Hugs, Birgit

Love the stars, Birgit! The little gold embossed sentiments inside of these stars are a great detail and tie in beautifully with the gold sequins, as do the black splatters and the outline of the stars. Your sentiment treatment is fantastic! So happy to see you in the gallery again this week! ❤️
