Baby, You're A Star!

Hello!  Still Monday here, and that means a new challenge over at Make My Monday.  This week, our challenge is to create a project with a charm on it.  My previous post showcased some other images and sentiments from the Picture Star plate by Artistic Outpost. After going through my small stash of charms I came across this star and realized that some of the other images and sentiments in this same plate would work well with for this card too.  I began by grabbing four different Distress Inks Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, Milled Lavender, and Wild Honey from my stash and smooshing them onto my Craft Mat, spritzing with water and building up layers of color.  I stamped some images with Wild Honey onto the prepared background.  The focal images were stamped with Timber Brown StazOn Ink, trimmed water colored and added next.  The stars, also from the same plate, were stamped, trimmed and water colored with Distress Markers and scattered onto the card front.  The sentiment was stamped in Worn Lipstick DI.  Chrome liquid pearls were added to the corners to add a bit of sparkle.  Thanks for stopping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne
