Stargazing...

... not with Professor Brian Cox this time... nope, this time I have been stargazing with Wendy Vecchi... not actually literally with her... that would be a hoot though...no, I have been playing with the new Studio 490 Celestial Art stamps again... I LOVE this set... I may have said that before... Anyways... Wendy from The Stamp Attic sent me this set to play with for my DT projects... ahhhh, it's a hard job (not lol) So, I made a tag... this one has a coloured base which was achieved using Wild Honey and Broken China (love that combo) Distress Stains, smooshing onto a craft sheet and spritzed with water, dipping and drying the tag over and over til I got the look I loved...



The background stamping was done by lightly applying the Broken China Stain direct to the stamp... loving the look that this gives... and you can apply more Stain to get a deeper look... so... I used Black Archival to stamp the stars and the sentiment at the bottom and the dictionary definition down the side... I LURVE that long border stamp... so versatile! **reading this back I can see that I LURVE all the stashly goodies I used on this tag!!!**



I used the Stains again to colour the seam binding ribbons and the Idea-ology Trim across the centre. Finally I had to add a little butterfly... I stamped the butterfly onto inked cardstock and then then again onto Clearly For Art and layered them up. I finished the tag with a few bits of Idea-ology and some ickle pearl danglies. All of the stashly goodies are available from The Stamp Attic.




Am scheduling this post... if Mr Blogger is bahaving this should publish at 13.00 ... if not... then... erm... ignore that last bit lol I am letting the train take the strain today and going off for a meet up with my crafty pals - and have a right good old catch up and of course, eat lots of chocolate cake too... imagine, I made TWO cakes yesterday and haven't even had a crumb.. ok, so I had lickeroonies of the cake mix bowl... I had one and Grim had the other one... why is raw cake mix so yummy??? Anyways... I shall bid you adieu and say... TTFN!! See you tomorrow if you are going to Ally Pally!!!
