ASM - Starry skies ....

... Good evening - now that the clocks have gone back, it's dark!  I'm not a great lover of the shorter days, but I do enjoy being in the warm and playing in my craft room!!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week we have a photo for inspiration and here's my card:


Starry Skies - Photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Super Stars
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Pacific Point, Soft Sky
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Silver Embossing Powder; Glitter


I think our inspiration photo is absolutely fabulous.  I love the bright silver and blue and the pretty stars - so that's what I've taken and used on my card.  This is a set that I "found" while tidying at the weekend.  I stamped the sentiment first in dark blue and then positioned the large star and three smaller stars.  I stamped them in Versamark and embossed with silver powder.  I added a few more stars and stamped them in light blue, and finished with three more smaller stars which I stamped in dark blue to match the sentiment.  This is a really clean, simple one layer card - and I'm submitting it to the current Addicted to CAS challenge - ATCAS25 where the cue word is "one-layer".

I must apologise for the quality of the photo on the main blog, I took it yesterday evenign and the light wasn't good.  I did some more photos this morning and they are so much better!!  Don't forget to visit the blog and check out the inspiration cards from the rest of the team - they're fab!!  Looking forward to seeing your creations based on the photo!  See you soon.
