Stampotique Designers Challenge #131 Stars

This week over on the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog it's the turn of our gorgeous Sam Read to choose a theme for our latest challenge.. this is what Sam says..

I don't know one person who doesn't enjoy looking at the stars. Stars fill us with a sense of fascination and wonderment. Earliest societies mapped and traced stars. The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second and because stars are so distant, many of them millions of light years away means we look in to the sky from the distant past. Therefore I am inviting you to use stars in your creation this week, as the main image or as an accent. I can't wait to see what you make, have fun!

Terricific theme Sam!

Today, I am sharing my altered Moleskine journal cover with you, this was so much fun to decorate. 

 Stamps used: Stars & Circles from the Design Cube, Tools Cube, Head, Crown, the bird from the Birds and Bugs Cube and PUSH HERE the Interactive Cube

First of all, I covered the book cover with old book pages and added some colour using Neocolor II crayons.

The stars and circles were stamped directly onto the background using Stazon ink. Texture was added using a gorgeous mask by Dina Wakley called Roman Letters available along with the texture paste from A sprinkle of imagination.

The cutie pie Head and his friend (bird) were both stamped onto cardstock and coloured then added to the front cover.

This was a great project to work on.. I hope you can join in with the latest fun challenge over at the challenge blog, the design team have lots of inspiration to share with you. Good Luck.

 Happy creating, Gez
