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! :)
