A Colorful Hello Card

Hello Everybody!

The challenge at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge inspired this card.  The challenge is to use stars.  (And Seth Apter is a guest there this month--sssqqqeeeaaallll!  I've seen his work in the Cloth, Scissors, Paper magazine.  It's awesome!) :)

So I started off with a gelli plate card background.  I used an almanac book page and golden paints and craft paints (dreamcoat, craftsmart, etc).  To read more about my gelli plate backgrounds go here.


Then I stamped stars around the edges.  The stamp is a Stampin Up stamp from the year 2000.  Wow!  LOL :)  Then I added Diarylide Yellow Golden fluid acrylic paint so the "hi" wouldn't get lost in the background.  The "hi" and the star are red modge melts.  I used a the modge podge mold for the star and wrote out hi with the glue gun.  I used Beacon 3 in 1 to adhere the "hi" to the card once the paint was dry.  Then I added the yellow star paper clip.  (Many moons ago Staples had a paper clip and binder bar.  You could fill up a cup with what you wanted.  That's where that star came from.) :)

Here is a closeup of the sentiment:


Here are the challenges that I would like to submit this too:





Thank you for stopping by today!  Until next time my friends...keep reaching for the stars! :)
