Seeing Stars!



I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for the layout, the colors from Betty's Color Challenge (Soft Suede, Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal), and the Verve set 'Seeing Stars' for Julee Tilman's Ready, Set, Stamp Challenge: Seeing Stars. Love this new EF by SU to give the suede layer a basketweave feel. I created my own star-studded DP, then stamped and punched and popped 3 different accent stars. The edges were highlighted with a Sakura Gellyroll Clear Star pen to add a hint of sparkle. TFL!

STAMPS: Seeing Stars (Verve)
PAPER: Vintage Cream (PTI), Soft Suede, Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal
INK: Soft Suede, Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal
ACCESSORIES: Star punches (SU), Optic Dot border punch (MS), Satin ribbon, Textured Impressions Square Lattice EF (SU), Corner punch (? name).

I really LOVE that you used a bg that wasn't stars, since the front is ALL stars. The cb bg is there for texture, but doesn't take center stage!! Great job.
