Hi and welcome to todays post in which I am showcasing a card using one of my older stamps from AALLandCreate. You can find a list of our stockists HERE. You can find the stamp set HERE.
 I began by adding Low Tack Tape to the outside edges of my card, leaving a central panel openn for decoration. I then blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink around the centre and then spritzed Autour de Mwa's stencil #7 with water and then placed the stencil water side down onto the ink and then dabbed the back of the stencil with a piece of kitchen towel. Dry the Ink with a Heat Tool.

With the Low Tack Tape still in place I then staped the stars in the background using Black Archival Ink. Once this stamping was complete I then removed the Low Tack Tape.
I added a scribbly line of white pen around the outside edge of the aperture to highlight further and I then added dimensional stars for my focal imagery, adding cotton threads behind for added texture. I also added some background stamping to the stars using my A4 Layered Grunge Stamp. The background stamping added to the stars has been done with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink.
This picture showcases the stencilled backdrop perfectly. I love adding lots of layers to my designs. I also included some delicate splatters of white paint.
Adornment Stars add further dimension to my design.
Really happy with how this one turned out and it could be used for a Birthday or Christmas Card depending on your chosenn sentiment.
