Star of Light on Textured Watercolour Paper

This card is another product of failure (the same failure that I mentioned last Friday!).  There was a light coating of Melon Mambo and Pacific Point ink on my Marbled background stamp so I spritzed it with water and pressed it down onto a piece of watercolour paper.

I was quite disappointed with the result - there was a very light print at one end from the Melon Mambo ink but half of the piece looked unaltered.

A simple Christmas card produced from a failed watercolour background!

Nevertheless, once the piece was dry, I sponged with Pacific Point ink and thought it would be a suitable background for a Christmas star.  So I cut some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with a die from the Starlight Thinlits and adhered it to the front.  I stamped a greeting from the matching Star of Light stamp set and cut it out with one of the Lots of Labels framelits.  I then trimmed it down and added some silver stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.  I added a Glitter Shape to the centre of the star.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
