Stars, stars and more stars ...

Tuesday already ... where do the days disappear to?  I was away at the weekend so tonight is the first chance that I've had to get creative ... so my first priority is to create a card for this week's challenge at "Less is More".  It is one layer week with the theme of Stars which is very handy for me as I get an excuse to break out some new UNIKO stamps!


I stamped and heat embossed the words with silver embossing powder.  I then masked it with a star and lightly ink blended the edges before stamping a selection of stars with distress inks.  That was the card done!  I sometimes feel as if I've cheated when I create one layer cards as there is so little involved.

I used:
UNIKO - Background Builders: Seeing Stars and Reach for the Stars stamp sets.
Distress Inks - Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch.

The challenge details:

"Less is More" #350
