CCCB Week #19- I See Stars

Well it's Bank Holiday Weekend here in the U.K. and the weather is awful,I don't think a day has gone by since I got back from my holiday that it hasn't rained. We won't be going anywhere in this weather so at least I can get some scrapping and cardmaking done and visit all the great challenge blogs.One of my favourite's is City Crafter Challenge Blog and the host for week #19 is June who as choosen 'I See Stars' for this week's challenge so like it says on the tin you must use stars on your project.

The red star paper is from Websters Pages and the blue lined paper is Sassafras Anthem. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo DI.
I die cut the tag using Spellbinders and inked the edges,I then added some eyelets and threaded through some twine.
The star was also cut out using a Spellbinder die using metal sheet and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.I painted the star with blue paint and inked with brown Staz-On and then sanded across the embossed area taking off the paint and ink.
I raised the tag and star with 3D foam pads to give some dimension and lastly added some buttons and the 'you're a star' title.

I'd like to thank CCCB for choosing me as one of their Spotlight Artists last week for my ' Isn't She Lovely' entry.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
