and the stars from Christmas baubles
and the O my stars stencil
This is what I got up to;
I made a galaxy background using distress oxide sprays on black card.
Using the stars from Christmas baubles I gold heat embossed them across the background.
I have shared my hand made candles in my blog several times over the years. I make these in batches as they sell well in Dotty's. They are made from paper straws. I used 1 from my blue stash.
I die cut a rectangle from inky mop up card using the smallest crazy running stitched die and adding star stenciling using the O my stars stencil and gold shimmer paste. I then edged the rectangle with black soot distress ink.
I made a plaque using one the sentiments from Party time, again gold heat embossed and glued it underneath.
I then matted up my card.
Here is my finished make
with a couple of close ups
and one final shot
