I'm always searching for a masculine type card to make and stars are always a good starting point! I used a Joggles "Shooting Stars" stencil and inked it with Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Black Soot distress inks onto white heavy weight Neenah Solar White card stock, blending an ombre effect downwards. Then while the stencil was still on I sprayed it with Perfect Pearls shimmer. Afterwards I used some Adirondak metallic silver paint dabber, Mermaid Lagoon and Black Soot Distress inks and watered them down to a "splashing" consistency and splattered the card stock. I stamped the ROCK (a clear stamp from an obscure and unknown company) with Versafine Black ink and filled it in (since it was originally outlined letters) with a Copic fine line pen and then made it shimmery with a Wink of Stella pen. I die cut the Avery Elle "Simply Said YOU" die from silver glitter paper and adhered it down with the Ranger multi medium in matte finish. Then I popped the whole panel up with black foam onto Gina K Designs base weight black card stock.
I wanted to add sequins or something else but anything else I thought to add would hamper the masculine part so I left it as is! Now I need a man to send it too! Possibly my brother's birthday in February!
Thanks for sticking with me and I'll see you after October 28th when I'm back in Alaska! I'll leave you with this moose calf photo... fattening up for winter alongside the road on my way to work the other day!
