Hey everyone, Lavinia World Challenges has a new challenge beginning today. Anything goes using a stamped image (rubber or clear, but no digis). The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Lavinia World!
I used the following stamps for today's project:
When I saw the Every Dream sentiment from Lavinia, I immediately thought of the old nursery rhyme "Star light, star bright":
I began by die cutting the circle of stars from a My Favorite Thing die set (Starry Circle) from white cardstock. I colored the circle with Distress Oxides and added a slightly smaller circle to the back. A sparkly yellow embossing powder was used to give this smaller circle color before it was adhered.
Next, I die cut another piece of white cardstock for my background using a Spellbinders die (Opulent Ovals). This was also colored using Distress Oxides and Inks.
I still wanted some subtle stars on this layer as well. As you know, Distress Oxides react with water. So I created a small puddle of water on my work surface and dipped the Stars Miniature stamp directly into the water puddle. Then I "stamped" this onto the die cut. At the beginning, I got larger splotches of water droplets as well as the star shapes from the stamp. The more I stamped, the more defined the stars became.
I stamped my Every Dream sentiment onto a piece of vellum using black ink and die cut it using another My Favorite Things die (Skinny Strips). I heat set this using Clear embossing powder.
My final layer was created by die cutting a rectangle from black cardstock. I made a homemade shimmer/glimmer mist and generously spritzed the silvery mist all over the black cardstock. It's really shimmery in person! All of the layers were then adhered to a multi-colored card base.
