I used DesignIt paste on one layer of watercolour paper, passing this through a starry stencil.
The focal stamped images were embossed with clear powder. I then sprinkled these with Sunburst Lemon before spraying them with water and the adding Gold SprinkleIT for extra shine. After another light spray of water, I brushed over these to make sure that the colour got in to every corner of the stars.
Once everything was dry, I mounted the base piece on white and then a kraft 15 x 15 cm card. With a little sentiment stamped in the corner, I would have been quite to happy to leave it there: I love this grungy look and the difference between the powders over the paste and on the paper. I used a paper distresser round the edges of the paper to emphasise the look.
I decided to add the stars anyway and they are very shiny! Cut out and layered over each other, they give the card a brighter, more seasonal look.
So, another card done: This one looks like it takes more work and longer than it does too as you can do other things while the layers are drying. The French 'bonne année' means happy new year and, of course, with a different sentiment this could be a birthday or other occasion card: Definitely one to repeat!
