PINK stars

If you're looking for my Oddball Art blog hop post click here

First of all apologies for the slightly yellow looking image.  I took this photo on my knee with my iPAD because I was too lazy to get up and put it on my copy stand - LOL!

This is my inspiration for the new challenge on the All Dressed up Facebook Group Stars or Snowflakes.

I've also done a step by step on how I've created this card which is being published on the All Dressed Up blog and in the Facebook Group - this was following a request from one of the members. 
The image is Little Star which you can get on Etsy - I've coloured it in pastel shades with ProMarkers.

I've then used lots of distressed layers of design papers from Lili of the Valley and Maja Designs.

I've used a Martha Stewart punch to cut a strip of pink design paper and added some lace over the top.

There's a pearl bead string which I got from Wild Orchid Crafts along the top of the card and some pearl gems and one tiny rhine stone one (because I got a tiny blob of glue there and needed something to cover it up LOL!)

The pink stars you can't actually get.  You can get the grunge board from most places it's from Tim Holtz which I used as my backing for them.  To create them I used gesso, pink acrylic paint, lots of DecoArt loose glitter and some DecoArt crackle paste.

Hope you'll come and join us at the challenge with your Christmas creations
