* Star Gazing Bear

I am still having trouble with Blogger. 
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments. For some reason, if you have comment moderation then I can comment. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!


Today I have a card to share. I bought some new stamps from Inkylicious at a local craft fair last weekend. Inkylicious is a local stamp company and they have the best images and sentiments - I always spend way too much when I visit!

My card features a Splatter Circle background stamp with the Star Gazing Bear and the sentiment We Have Stars.

I used my stamping platform to stamp the background. The stamp was loaded with layers of Memento Ink and was spritzed with water then stamped. I repeated this twice, then added some Brilliance silver ink. The bear was stamped onto white card, coloured with Copic markers, fussy cut and glued onto the stamped background. The sentiment was heat embossed in black. I added some white Posca pen dots as stars and the occasional twinkling star and also some Stickles Crystal glitter around the ink splatters. I cut my card with a Sue Wilson square die and matted it onto deep blue shimmer paper then mounted it onto a 7 x 7 inch card base.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  4. Sorry can't help with the commenting thing. I and other DT members have been unable to leave comments on some entries for no apparent reason.

So glad I could comment on yours though...stunningly simple layout yet utterly beautiful :) Thank you for sharing at Crafting With Friends XXX
