(2018 c107)Congrats You’re a Star


For the background (which I made ages ago, so glad I wrote what I had used on the back) I Started by making my galaxy background on watercolor paper with the Smooshing Technique using Wilted Violet Distress Inks by Ranger  and Salty Ocan and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger .  Next I painted the stars through a generic STAR stencil with cheap acrylic white paint.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA( The color blead through making them a little lavender).  For the FOCAL POINT I cut thin strips of Stickit by Ken Oliver  and laid on the surface to create the STAR.  Then I ran it through my heated laminator using Gold Heidi Swapp Minc Reactive Foil.  CELEBRATE was cut with Neat and Tangled Celebrate – Nice and Neat Dies.
