Traveling by MY own glittering star...

Please click on the picture to really see the detail of this intricate image.  The Moxie Fab World Challenge is for glitter and glam! It's the perfect season, don't you think?   I love glitter, but not the mess.  My sparkle of choice is  Stickles or Spica glitter pens...well maybe a tiny little bit of Vintage German Glass Glitter.  

I've been waiting to use this Starlight Angel from Stampland.  I thought it would work perfectly into the glitter challenge. And the Swahili quote:  No one can travel by someone else's star.  Just look at all those beautiful stars floating in the night sky...all that creativity. 


City Crafter's Challenge # 37 is Stamp it Out to use real stamps this week.   In addition to the large starlight angel from Stampland, the quote is from A Stamp in the Hand.  It is a wood mounted two line stamp that I inked on another piece of white card stock and then cut out the quote to fit my design. 

I used a card stock from Making Memories called dusk.  The image was inked with VersaFine Majestic Blue and a tiny bit of Tim Holtz Walnut stain at the bottom for the landscape.  The saying was inked with Adirondack Latte.   I used a brass star in place of the word, dipping it into the vintage Glass Glitter.  A tiny hand dyed navy silk ribbon finishes the top.

Thank you for stopping by my home today.  I hope you will be inspired to go star gazing!
