Baby, You're A Star!

There's a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show and the theme is Stars!  Lucky me, as I just purchased this gorgeous stamp set from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  It is an Artistic Outpost plate entitled Picture Star.  I was in the mood to work with my water soluble Oil Pastels again, so I began by using them to create this colorful background.  Various images from the Picture Star plate were stamped with Black StazOn Ink onto the colored background.  I decided not to color in the baby as I thought it just looked so retro in black and white.  Love this new stamp set!  Also entering this over at the PanPastels UK Blog Challenge.  Thanks for stopping by.  Yvonne

Hi there, I love the contrast between the b&w and the vivid background. That image so reminds me of Elton John! Wonderful background work and the black matting works brilliantly. Overall fabulous card! Nicola x
