SDC131 - Shoot for the Stars

How exciting that a Stampotique order arrived at my door today .... I did the happy dance to my craft room, sat down and began to create. Have you seen all those cartoon comedic posts about doing something because someone said it will be fun, and it really isn't ? lol A lot of them are so random and really amuse me. I had this idea for Shoot for the Stars as soon as I saw this weeks star challenge, poor Dweeze, suspended there in outer space. I was really happy with how this page turned out, especially how using Stampendous embossing powders made the stars shine - I used aged copper, aged silver and shabby pink.

Thanks for visiting, hope you like it :)

There is so much detail and texture in the stars, I thought I would take a few close up pics of them in a duller light to avoid the shine and sparkle. I LOVED how this embossing powder melted, becomes fluid and moves around. I wanted to add some pink, because Dweeze is in touch with his feminine side wearing his pink coat :)

  4. Love how you cleverly repositioned Dweeze's art to fit your vision for this project, Nikki! I know embossing takes time, but so worth it to get that shimmer in your stars! Thanks for joining us in the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week!
