TMR - Theme ....

.... Hello! We had a fantastic response to our last challenge at The Male Room, so I hope you enjoy this theme as much as the last. For the next couple of weeks we want to see STARS - TMR#60 on your masculine projects. It's coming up to graduation time for the seniors at our local high school, so I decided to go with a theme that would work for a graduate or someone starting a new job:

Stamps: MFT - Stars Above; Stampin' Up! - Gorgeous Grunge, Word Play
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Kaleidacolor - Blue Breeze, Desert Heat; Delicata - Silvery Shimmer
Dies: Die-namics - Stars Above
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Tempting Turquoise; Glue Pen; Foils

I'm submitting this card to Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#110 where they want to see Grunge, CASology - CAS#248 where the cue word is Commencement, and to the on line gallery at Online Classes Sparkle and Shine - this features foils.

I was watching the foiling video from Sparkle and Shine class this morning and realised that I had totally forgotten that you can use glue pens to adhere foil to stamps. I stamped the stars on some scrap card and drew over them with a fine glue pen, allowed them to dry until tacky and then added foil. It's so easy and so effective. I cut them out with matching dies. I stamped a grungy background, stamped a bold sentiment and adhered the stars with dimensional tape. On the inside I cut a mat layer of bright turquoise card, and on the white panel added a sentiment and some more stars.

Here's a close up of the foiled stars - so pleased how they turned out!
