This is Stars Shining.

This was such a fun card to make this morning. I actually made a few stars, but as I am playing in the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today, I picked the blue star for my card.

To start this card, first up was to do the star using this tutorial. I did not have any white napkins, all of mine have designs,so I wondered if I could use paper towels.

Knowing they absorb water more than a napkin does, I thought I would use six layers instead of the eight, and it worked out good. Next stop is to get white napkins!

Die cutting a Star and using my Kuretake Pearl watercolours I painted the star using the blue and white paints and while still damp I sprinkled on a bit of white glitter.

I then stencilled a piece of 5.25 x 4 inch piece of cardstock and using A Colorful Life stencil and Distress Oxide inks in Blueprint Sketch, then topped with Salty Ocean.

Attaching the stencilled piece to my card base, I then stamped the Joyful sentiment and glued on the star.

I really like the mix of textures and the patterns. I hope you will give it a try.

Following are Affiliate links to the products that I have used today, at no extra cost to you. The Star die that I have used came from MFT and is not manufactured any longer. I have linked to a Spellbinder and Sizzix Star for ease of reference.

Thank you for visiting.
