PTI Blog Hop Time!










WHEW!

It was close, but I was able to get this done, feed my family dinner, and get it posted in time :).

Yellow- I love it, but don't always get ti to 'work' for me...so this was certainly a challenge!

Are you all just not in LOVE with the new Fancy Flourishes, and Star Prints??? I know I am!!!

Here's my project:













I originally has something else in mind, but I can't put these stars down! The Lemon Tart layer has a background made from a repeated pattern of images from the Faux Ribbon set, stamped in Lemon Tart, for a tone on tone look.

The star was stamped in Versamark, and then I used white embossing powder (in this detail shot, you can see I can really use some detail white-- guess I'll be adding it to my next order!) Then I used my sakura stardust pen and scribbled in some spots, and wiped it off with a baby wipe...the effect?? lots of soft sparkle....













Hope you all had a relaxing weekend -- I know I'm DREADING work tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Supplies:
Stamps: Star Prints, Fancy Flourishes, Faux Ribbon
Ink: SU! Basic Gray, Lemon Tart, Versamark
Paper: Lemon Tart, Kraft, Basic Gray(SU!)
Accessories: Dimensionals, white EP, sakura stardust pen
