Another sketch

I noticed this sketch challenge on 

"Star Gazing"

Funnily enough I had just been looking through my SU stamps and found lots of starry ones...

Taking a cream rectangular card blank, 'landscape', and using the Sizzix die 'Retro Frame'
I came up with this...

The inks I used were Hero Arts 'Brown Bark' and Soft Cantaloupe' - lovely dye inks that are excellent for background stamping and over-stamping as in the frame and tone-on-tone as in the base strip.
The images were stamped on cream cardstock.
The frame and star motifs were mounted on chipboard and then cut out.
To emphasize the stars in the frame I covered them with a small piece of acetate.
A 'star' floral embellishment completes the picture.

Thank you Kelly for also suggesting I submit this to the
S is for...Susan's Stars!!

Happy Crafting!
