Be The Star - SDC131

Happy Wednesday everyone, today is once again my day to post over at Stampotqiue Designer's Blog, I hope you will stop by and check it out.

The Designer's Challenge this week is hosted by the wonderful Sam an she is challenging us to use some "Stars" 

For this creation I used Stampotique Stamp:
Zara Gift by Maria Sabina Raita

I love this challenge, stars are my favorite next to butterflies and hearts haha!! I wanted to make a birthday card for a friend of mine who is having a birthday this month.
I had this great Tim Holtz Ranger watercolor paper laying around the craft room and I really wanted to get it out and play
I also used some Tim Holtz Distress paint in two colors to create my background for this card.

I love the way you can spritz the paper and paint and just run your card stock through the paint and it all blends

While that was drying I stamped my image and colored Zara with copic markers
I then used Archival ink and a stencil to create my stars and dots that are in my background

I took a white gel pen and doodled here and there on the stars and circles
I added some colored wash tape and wrote my sentiment and cut it out and put everything together

I'm not very good coloring with copic markers just yet but I'm taking some classes this year so hopefully I'll get better haha!! For now, here is my image

This turned out to be a fun and festive card for my friend, hope she likes it 

Thanks again for stopping by, have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!! XOXO
