Star Quality


Created for the Gothic Arch Challenge where the theme is Stars. The background was created using Starburst inks in Shamrock Green, French Lilac & Violet-Teal. The inks were applied to plain copier paper, then the paper scruched into a ball to create wrinkles. The mica from the inks gathers in the wrinkles and creates a shimmery effect. This was then ironed flat and stamped with an alphabet background using Versafine Black. Next I added lilac snow mesh to the top and base of the arch, followed by a german scrrap border. The collage image was attatched, and 4 silver star brrads were coloured with alcohol purple alcohol ink, mixed with a little gold Krylon. Finally, dymo text was added.
