Friday Focus

Hey! Welcome to a bank holiday weekend Friday morning on my blog!  Well today is not strictly a bank holiday, but we're almost there.

A card to share today and it's going into three challenges.  The layout is from a new to me challenge - sketchn'scrap, the colours are from Colour Q and the theme from The Male Room - STARS.

Stars had me reaching immediately for my Clearly Besotted Superstar stamps and dies. So I started by die cutting three stars onto a strip of card which I then used to lightly pencil the positions of where the stamps woud need to go.

Next I stamped the three stars and then the long blue horizontal line and sentiment. I used foam pads to raise the die cut strip over the stamped stars.


I really like how the stars look slotted into the apertures.


A final finishing touch was added with three sequins to outline the sentiment.

Supplies:
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Superstar; Uniko Studio, Background builders Squared
Inks: SU, soft sky, rich razzleberry, old olive; Ranger distress, dusty concord
Die: Clearly Besotted, superstar
Embellishments: Sequins

Thanks for looking today!
