Star Baby

Greetings!  Linda here with a card I made for the recent Picture Star release.  This set is jam-packed with awesome stamps.  This star-baby is absolutely adorable.  As soon as I saw this stamp, I envisioned him in yellow.  Isn't he just the cutest with his trench coat and beret.  The background was made with the marbled stains technique with Mustard Seed and Picket Fence distress inks.  I used the stars from the set to stamp the background and also embossed some kraft core card stock with a star pattern and then sanded it.  The Tim Holtz ATC die was perfect for cutting the panel for the baby, who was colored with copics.  The STAR and Baby You're A Star  sentiments as well as the film reels and chalk board are all stamps from the set and were stamped in jet black archival ink.  If you haven't seen this set, you really should check it out here.

What a wonderful composition, Linda! Love the colours and the use of the giant star. I have this set so always glad to see ideas for using it. My friend borrowed mine to make a card for her grandchild's first birthday,
