Shine Bright

It's time for another fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is the wonderful Rita Wright!  I just love her sketch - check it out:


I used some NBUS on my card - the adorable Lucky stamp set by MFT.  I stamped and colored the large star and a bunch of the smaller star using Copics.  I then took a panel of white cardstock and sponged distress inks in an ombre fashion.  On top of that, I used the new star stencil to add more interest to the sponged panel, using Fossilized Amber ink.





That panel was die-cut with a pierced rectangle die and adhered to a white card base  I then adhered a white-embossed black sentiment panel to the card base using foam tape.  Lastly I added the large star which I'd painted with Wink of Stella.


Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some fabulous cards showcasing this sketch, so be sure to check them out.

Ink:  Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber Distress Inks, Black Licorice Hybrid, Versamark
