This week's theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is to use STARS. I really struggled with this - I realized I don't really have much stash with stars.... so I had to get creative...
I decided to alter a 6x6 canvas. I started by blending several colors together on the canvas. I used red pepper, citrus, pearl and copper paint dabbers.
Then I added some molding paste with a palette knife and painted over it with the same colors - this is a great way to added texture. I was completely inspired by Rach's technique in her latest YouTube video - check it out! I found some stars I bought a while ago - they are nestaboard by spellbinders. I painted them with pearl and copper dabbers.
Then I used the pearl paint to add more stars with the Tim Holtz star stamp (from bitty grunge set), outlining all the stars with a black pitt pen.
Added some random patches of mirobeads, a sentiment stamped with mini alpha stamps, and added some bling.
Hope you have a chance to join in the fun this week. As always you'll have a chance to win a $50 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp!
If you do take a moment to wish upon a star.... I hope all your wishes come true! Have a great week!
