Simon Says: Starry Night


Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

Starry Night 
This week we are challenging you to look to the cosmos and add a star or two to your creation!

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!
Please pop by and see what the fabulous Tenia and the DT have made, they are all SUPER STARS!!! ;-) 

I decided to add a Christmas card to my box, its filling up quite nicely!! Not sure how many I have made but I am sure to need a lot more ;-) 

I started with some White Yupo Paper, Aquamarine and Denim Alcohol Inks, a Simon Holiday Background Stamp and Alcohol Lift Ink and made a fabulous background, I love this technique! 



I then blended some Iced Spruce and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide onto Watercolour paper and used a Tim Holtz Festive Scribbles Die Set to cut the tree and star, the star I sparkled with Yellow Glitter, sooo pretty IRL ;-) 


I added some Silver Sparkle Tape and a strip of starry tape across the 'snow' panel and wrapped some May Arts Red Burlap Twine and gems to finish 


and I finished the inside





Thanks for looking!
