SSS: Show us Some Stars

This week at Simon Says Stamp the prompt was to use stars.  I used Tim's new distress stains + water to make the backgrounds, then did the same on a tag which I cut in strips and ran through the Vagabond in a dot texture fade.  Stamped  a star and punched a few more, then ran two through with the fade as well.  Inks are wild honey, spiced marmalade, broken china, brown corduroy. Sentiment is Tim's.  Thanks for stopping by!

Your comments are very much appreciated!

  5. Susan, thanks for visiting! You’ve got to check out the new “distress stains” – they are a liquid ink that you roll onto the paper… there are 12 colors and they all coordinate with the distress inks by Ranger. For these I rolled em on and spritzed with water, then heat set it.

  6. Awesome! Love the colors, love the dots, love the stars. In fact, I love it all. Did you brush the inks on the background? Definitely not sprayed.
