Starry Starry Night .......

Good morning!

Happy Thursday to you.  At least it's not raining this morning ...... yet!!  One of the joys of living on the Isle of Man ..... the weather can be a little changeable, usually by lunchtime!

It's not all bad though ..... hubby sent me a link the other day, 45 Reasons Why Living in the Isle of Man Ruins you for Life!  see what you think!

It's the dreaded One Layer Week over at Less is More ....... always fun!  And this time the focus is ....

Starry, Starry Night!

We still need to keep to the CAS rule, lots of white space, and there must be stars on there (obviously!)

I decided NOT to go all festive on this one ...... I needed a change, I'm getting all Christmas'd out!!

I used Distress Inks to colour the panel (Stormy Sky/Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire) after I'd stamped the stars using Versamark and Clear embossing powder.
The embossing powder acts as a resist to the ink ..... once I was happy with the colour I buffed over the stars with a piece of kitchen roll removing any ink left on them.  The darker the ink, the more the stars show through

I then stamped my favourite Lavinia fairy .....

Added some foliage around the edge, and my sentiment ....

And a touch of Clear Wink of Stella to her wings ....... a girl needs sparkly wings!

One Layer Week ..... done. Thank goodness!

Here's something else about the Isle of Man ...... not everything means the same over here as it does in the UK (or anywhere else for that matter!)  Check this out ...... it made me smile!

Thanks for popping by ........ have a great Thursday!

Cheerio until next time
