The Star .........



This weeks challenge over on the Less is More Challenge Blog for week 197 is 'Starry Starry Night'.

I made this card as my entry.




I used a 5 x 5 white card blank as the base.

I have stamped a cloudscape with a single star using a series of stamps from Stamp In The Hand.  I love these stamps as they just look fab for an atmospheric sky effect.  Black Memento ink was used to allow me to colour them with Marvey alcohol ink brushpens.

I used bright yellow to highlight the single star.





The sentiment is from PaperArtsy and was stamped in Versafine black ink, trimmed out and matted on another square coloured with the same yellow pen before placing on foam pads.

Also entering this into the 'Shine' theme at the Inkspirational Challenge Blog No.69.

Simples !
