Starry Village Night

Challenge #71 “All the Trimmings” Partnering with The Paper FunDay

A few weeks ago I created this shooting star background by using silver embossing paste through a Hero Arts stencil. Finally got around to using it and made this card for the Double Trouble TicTacToe challenge. I used the diagonal line from bottom left to top right. I didn’t go along with the twisted sister section though.

I added the background piece to a dark gray card front and then took the soft patterned paper from a Recollections pad and die cut the circle before adding it on top. Using the village die from Cottage Cuts I die cut the village I cut a piece off the end so it would fit where I wanted. Before gluing it I used a small sponge with some faint violet ink to give it a bit more definition and I also added a touch of sparkle with a Stardust Sakura Gelly roll pen. The sentiment is from my newest MFT kit. I’m using this particular stamp a lot right now so I guess it is my latest favourite stamp.

  1. Another beautiful card! You are on a roll, Johanna. I love your starry background and the paper you chose is beautiful for the snowy village. Great job on your highlighting, too. All the blues and silver give it a great snowy look. I’m ignoring the “cold” part. 😉

    1. Thanks Golda – you made me smile at the cold part. I try to ignore it too as this isn’t my favourite time of year.
