Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

 Hello bloggers!  I just had to have another play with alcohol inks and the Silver Sparkle Alcohol ink card from Ranger (I love this stuff!)  I used Sunshine Yellow, Valencia Orange, Enchanted and Red Pepper Alcohol inks and added them in stripes to my silver sparkle card.  Next I used the Pierced Star die set and cut two of the sizes randomly into a piece of white card.  I added mounting foam to the back of the piece and attached it over the silver sparkle alcohol inked card.  I cut the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star sentiment in black and added it to the backing piece which I cut in white.  I attached it with mounting foam to the lower corner of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  9 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

It's you Sue Wilson that's our star.

A lovely way to showcase your star dies with the alcohol inks, blue inks for a boy or male birthday and so it goes. Lovely.
Hope everyone is making the most of this lovely Bank Holiday weather, most unusual to have a warm, sunny, dry bank holiday.
Love to all xx said...

Morning Sue.
Wow now I can see it in Blue with Santa weaving through the stars Thank you.
A brilliant card thank you for the inspiration.

Hi Sue. What a good idea to cut the stars into the card to show whatever you choose to put behind them through the aperture. I am sure this design could be used for many occasions and for any age group.

A lovely card, with my favourite sentiment. I really must get my alcohol inks out, I haven’t been terribly successful with them so far. Thank you Sue.
