You’re A Star!

At Craft Your Passion this week it’s ‘ANYTHING GOES’.Such a fabulous challenge – you can let your imagination go wild!Please click on the link to see how to play along,check out the fantastic (as ever) fellow DT samples and grab yourself the chance to win some brilliant digi stamps!!

For my card I’ve used ‘Playful Star Cub’ from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps.So adorable and full of fun – he looks like he’s ready to pounce,but in a nice way!He’s been coloured with Promarkers and the patches on his eyes were given a coating of Clear Copic Atyou Spica (although the camera hasn’t really picked it up).The papers are from The Wobblers CD-rom and are leftovers from a previous project.After adhering the layers to the front of the card I cut an aperture using Nestabilities Labels 1 (saves any fiddly measuring and lining up) and cut a frame with the help of a magnetic mat.I added an acetate window.I’ve made aperture cards before but this is the first time I’ve used acetate this way.I’ve seen it on a few cards and thought I would ‘borrow’ the idea.I stuck some more papers inside including the front to cover up where I’d put the window in.I stuck the cub,using PVA glue,by his paws and tail after shaping him a little with my fingers.The sentiment was printed from the computer onto Safmat,cut out and placed on a Maxi brad.They were to hand still in the bag as I’d never gotten round to putting them away!I’d not seen these before and found them in a half price bargain bin.I thought they’d be ideal as a novel way to add greetings to cards or stamped on for embellishments.
