Simon Says: 'Star Light, Star Bright'










Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week we are inviting you to add a bright shiny star to your creation!

Star Light Star Bright




 The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight ;-)

What are you wishing for? 

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by to see what our fabulous guest Suman and the DT made this week, all of them are so gorgeous!! 

I had a fun time getting inky and made a Christmas canvas decoration.

I started by scrunching up a piece of Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap and then glued it to the Canvas, leaving the scrunchy texture. I then applied a coating of Gesso before adding colour with Distress Oxide Inks (Faded Denim, Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet and Black Soot  randomly over the top.



I then die cut some Tim Holtz Stacked Stars from Grungepaper and smooched these in a puddle of the side inks. In the end I only used the blueish ones.  I used a text stamp to add some lettering and then randomly sprinkled with gold embossing to create a funky effect ;-)


I  then used a Tim Holtz Starry Layering Stencil and Embossing Paste to add some texture, While the paste was still wet I sprinkled with fine gold glitter dust 



I gold embossed some Simon Says stamp Artsy Star Shapes  and added some Star Adornments and some random sprinkles of gold embossing. 


I used a Tim Holtz Marquee Die Set, smothered with Vintage Platinum Glitter Dust for the lettering. 


Artsy angle ;-) 



Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

Wat een prachtige creatie heb je gemaakt. Mooi met al die kleuren van Distress Oxide. Geeft een mooi effect.

Leuk dat je een reactie op mijn blog hebt achtergelaten en volger van me geworden bent. Ik wilde ook volger van. je worden, maar ik zag dat ik dat al een hel poos geleden al van je geworden was. Hihihi.
