Stamp Simply #146 - Seeing Stars.......

The Stamp Simply Challenge today is about Stars and seeing them used on your card. Here are the challenge details in Sharon's words:
July 02 - ssnotime146 - Star Light, Star Bright -- This week we will focus on incorporating stars into our projects -- partriotic stars; A+ Great Job! stars; twinkle, twinkle little stars -- ANY kind of stars you like.  Use punched or die cut stars, stickers, star paper -- you get the idea.  Just show us some fabulous stars this week!
Play along and link your project on Sharon's blog, No Time to Stamp using Mr. Linky. See what goodies the team cooked up this week....our Ring Leader Sharon, Janine OrchardA J OttoDeb SaarenenDeb NeermanBarb AndersBarb Schram and we have Clare Buswell from Ireland as our Guest Designer this month... Her blog is Clare's Creations.
I used a polka dotted star stamp from Hero Arts  and then cut it out, adding a few little twinkling crystals to the star's polka dots, as well as a row of them on the paper seam. I remember when I was so stingy with my crystals, before you could buy them everywhere.... I would have never put an entire line of them on one card!!! LOL!!!  I added a sentiment, overlapping the stamping on the blue layer too.  I did add a little distressing on the edges of the blue square by dragging it across on my ink pad. I kept it simple in design and stamping, keeping to the Stamp Simply Challenge..... no nesties or Copics, a rare event.... such a tiny little supply list below!!!  Finished card size is an A2.
  • Stamps: All stamps by Hero Arts
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
  • Paper: Orange, Black, All other paper is Basic Grey from the Max and Whiskers Collection
  • Other: Small Grey Crystals
