Starry starry night

Hi there!

It's a one layer week at Less is more... And there should be a STAR somewhere on your design.




For my card I created I stencil, cut with my Silhouette, by welding a large star inside an oval. After sponging with distress inks, I stamped the Middle Eastern skyline ( a very old wood mounted stamp of unknown origin) in the widest part of the star.

I want to give credit to my Dutch friend Gerrina for her inspiration ... while I was struggling with an idea for this card... her post popped up in my blog reader... and 1-2-3 -CASE Gerrina! 

You can see her card here!

I added a season's greeting sentiment to finish it off.

I will also enter :

Crafty hazelnut's Christmas challenge ~ keep it flat.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Nog 'n briljante skepping, vrou!!! So baie, baie slim om daai ster so te gebruik!!! Daai stamp is net eenvoudig GEMAAK vir hierdie kaartjie - dit pas so perfek in die ster - ongelooflik!!! En die sentiment is ook net reg en pas so perfek!!! Dis pragtig, vrou!!!! ...en dink net hoe pragtig sal dit lyk met 'n helder geel of oranje ster, ook!!! Joe, vrou, dit is regtig mooi!!

Groete en 'n baie lekker week vir jou, hoor!!!!

So very creative. I wish I had some religious stamps but they seem hard to find. Gerrina is so creative too, I am off to check her card out now as I must have missed that x

You've knocked "one layer" clear out of the ball park with this stunning creation! Your blending and shading is stunning!
