UK Stampers Postcard Swap - June
This month's postcard for the swap hosted by Sam on UK Stampers has to have circles and stars. By coincidence I had just ordered a star stencil by Memory Box so of course I had to use it. I sponged the background with orchid Fresco paint (it's a discontinued colour and one of only 2 Fresco paints I have) and then used purple Ferro paste through the stencil. When dry I drew around the larger stars with a white Uniball and a black Pigma micron pen and circled around a few smaller stars. The quote is a stamp I bought years ago in The States for a dollar. I stamped it on a scrap piece of card and covered it with a Wink of Stella pen. I've seen this used by quite a few people online and have wanted to try it out so when I saw it at the Craft Barn Extravaganza on Saturday, I picked it up. I'm quite pleased with the slight shimmer it gives and it's very user-friendly. I edged the postcard with seedless preserves Distress Ink.
