Good Sunday morning to you all. Thanks for stopping back by today. I'm here with a card I made for the September release of the Picture Star plate from Artistic Outpost. I wanted sepia tones to set off my young star for this piece and backed her up with a piece of newsprint paper from Graphic 45 (ancient and hoarded, been in my stash for years). She was stamped with Sepia archival ink and I actually found an advertisement for theater on the newsprint paper. I framed her up with a cabinet card frame that I embellished with embossing. The frame was made by using the base Vintage Cabinet Card die and the Mini Movers and Shapers Cabinet Card die to cut a piece of chipboard. Then I stained it, ran it through the Regal Flourishes Texture Fade and then went over it with a white craft pad.
The flower was made by stamping the floodlights stamp in sepia and then die cutting it with the Tattered Pinecones die. I added a scrap of Venise lace for the base along with some eyelash yarn. I stamped some stars from the set in the corners and stamped the lights-camera-action on to a mini label cut with the Mini Styled Labels die and then painted with Clear Rock Candy distress crackle paint. I know its a simple card, but I was pleased with the design and the colors - just another fun way to use this newly released plate.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are all having a great fall weekend!
