Be a Star!

Hello all, Alison here with a tag which was inspired by Tim Holtz's February tag... but I went down the Artistic Outpost route with it!
The sentiment is from the Typography stamp set... and I thought it lent itself really well to the Chalkboard technique.
I had a lovely time clear embossing over the stencilled Distress Inks for the background.
And while I'm not much of a glitter fan, even I can get on board with glitter that you can ink afterwards to distress it!  Two colours combined here - Pumice Stone and Broken China, and then inked with Walnut Stain.
A couple of Idea-ology Industrious stickers, some linen ribbon, and that's pretty much it...
Hope to see you playing along in our March Referral Program with your Artistic Outpost projects...  Thanks so much for stopping by.

You always make something wonderful, Alison! I like this version of Tim's tag, star stencil and blue background go really well together.

Hi Alison, I love the starry background of your tag and yes that sentiment lends itself very well the the chalkboard technique, this is one of my favourite techniques. Like you I could never get on with glitter either but the distress glitters are so chunky and they look cool especially when mixed as you have done here. Mo x
