Created Byhand Challenge - Stars


The theme this week on the Created Byhand Challenge (forum or blog) is either Freedom or Stars - I went with stars.  This is a large card - 6 1/4" square.  On a 6" square piece cut from a manila folder I sponge various Distress Inks.  Using a brush with not too much water on it I speckled on some water drops (I didn't do my usual flick off the fingers because I didn't want any large water spots).  Across the bottom is stamped some fiddleheads (Quietfire Design) with Archival Ink jet black.  All the white dots are made using the Ranger Inkssential white pen (I totally love this pen).  Stamped the saying (Quietfire Design) on white cardstock, cut it out with Spellbinders Classic Scallop Rectangle next to the largest die and with the die still in place used the foam blending tool to sponge on some Distress Ink milled lavender and dusty concord.  Colored white silk ribbon (Quietfire Design) with dusty concord ink.  A star charm wired in the bow to finish it off.  Quietfire Design has some nice star charms but I must have used them all up - need to restock :-))  I have no idea where the one I did use on the card came from.
