Stars and Back

This card has been made using the monthly progressive freebie from the Outlawz Challenge. It is called Stars & Back and the artist is All Dressed Up.

I printed the image onto blue card as well as my normal white. This enabled me to paper piece the hat and trousers and raise up on 3d foam.

The image has been coloured with Promarker, Flexmarkers and gel pens. The background image is a colouring page from Elizabeth Dulemba. I printed it onto blue card and used blue & silver inkpads and I stippled ink onto the background with a stiff brush.

Many of the stars have been 'coloured' using silver glitter. I haven't used loose glitter for a long time and of course it went everywhere :) This background was mounted onto silver holographic card and then a navy blue card base.

Card Details:-

Card Size - A5
Image - Stars and Back by All Dressed Up
Background - Stars Colouring page by Elizabeth Dulemba
Coloured with - Promarkers, Flexmarkers, gel pens
Embellishments - Loose glitter
