Star Journey! by Nicky Cresswell

Well ello my lovely blogging chums, so nice of you to stop by.
Today i have a humble tag to share.

A very simple distress ink background using wild honey & victorian velvet blended together.
Then lots of simple stamping using the Star Plethora set and Simple Swirls set
To make it a bit more interesting I stamped an extra star onto grungeboard and layered it up.
And i also threaded some wire intermittently along the lines for some added texture.
 I cut out a banner in grungeboard from the 'regal crest' alterations die, coloured using the same distress inks and then stamped the 'all of life' phrase in black archival ink.
I attached it to the tag using wire, all i did was to pierce some holes using a retractable craft pick and threaded the wire through like a coil.
I hope you have enjoyed my simple but fun project today.
Oh and don't forget
You still have time {just} to enter this months 'Things with Wings' theme challenge HERE.
Happy Creating
