As you can see - it's landscape and has torn edges - so a bit different to my original plan. However, I'm pleased with it. I made the mat from Coredination card - I ran it through my Bug using a pretty star folder and then sanded the embossing to reveal the core. I roughly tore the edges to make the panel the size I wanted. I don't often do this technique - I like clean, sharp edges!! The stars were stamped in Versamark and then embossed with detail silver. I used bleach to take out some of the colour in the card - you can see that most clearly in the purple and red stars. Then I added sparkle to some of the bleached areas with Stardust pens. Finally, a simple, but bold sentiment.
Stamps: See-D's - You're the Star (#50019)
Ink: Versarmark; Memento - Tangelo
Accessories: Card from stash; Silver embossing powder; Cuttlebug embossing folder - Christmas stars
That's all for now. I'm off to craft class this morning. If you want to read more about playing in the garden I'll be posting pictures later. See you soon.
