The stars at night, are big & bright...

Yes indeedy, the stars are shining on my latest creation.  It's for the Simon Says Stamp & Show blog challenge 'Stars'.  There's a lot happening on this tag so I'll just list what I used.  I did start off with a chipboard tag that I covered with a a neutral cardstock.  Wendy's tissue tape & color wash technique was used but once everything else was added you wouldn't know that.  The inspiration for this piece can be found on Wendy's blogAll the parts were leftovers from earlier pieces - more gone from my stash!

Ranger Inks +: Snow Cap White Pigment, Black & Coffee Archival inks, Gold Paint Dabber, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Fired Brick, Faded Jeans, Forest Moss, Old Paper, Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Wild Honey Distress Inks, Black Enamel Accents, Black Soot Distress Stickles, Inkssentials pen, Sunflower Gold Perfect Pearls

Tim Holtz: Townscape, Scallop on the edge dies, Regal Crest & Banner die, Tattered Florals die, grungepaper and grungeboard

And to think I got all this in a 4"x6" space!
