Stampin' Up! Stitched Stars Dies

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

And welcome back to another Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. I hope you enjoy my project with this month's theme - Make it Sparkle.

This month's theme was a little tough for me. So my "sparkle" is Stars, because they sparkle in the sky and on my project, Wink of Stella sparkles too and I have splattered over the top layer. I also got my blending brush with coordinating ink, in this case it is Misty Moonlight, and blended around the outside edge of the top layer so it reminds me of the night's sky.

So you can see that I have raised the top layer using dimensionals. I also raised the large star and adhered the small start directly to the top layer. When using foils sheets, I like to use mini glue dots so I have placed them behind the thin Misty Moonlight piece. You can certainly use liquid glue, it just takes a little longer to dry and I do LOVE my liquid glue but I was too impatient to wait. LOL

I couldn't resist and added some wink of stella which I splattered around. Now, to splatter, all you need to do it open your wink of stella and make sure there is liquid in the nib area, then using your bone folder or something like that, lightly tap the wink of stella to the bone folder and watch the magic happen. Droplets of sparkle will appear on your project.
TIP: do make sure to have some scrap paper underneath your project when splattering. It can get a little messy. LOL
