Simple stars

This afternoon I suddenly remembered a gorgeous stencil I have that's a Christmas star, so had to have a play and make some more star themed cards for our next challenge on the 52CCT.

No step by step photos for this one, but it's a technique I've done before, here.

I spritzed through the stencil with water onto watercolour card. I used my posh super smooth stuff, as the stencil is so detailed.

I then removed the stencil and sprinkled on brushos to react with the water. Put aside carefully to dry, then flick to remove the dry powder.

The first attempt is shown at the top - the best of the lot!

Here are the others:

Simple but pretty.

I also have 6 others that didn't work so well - mostly because I kept forgetting to remove the stencil before adding the brusho. They're still lovely but the star shape isn't clear. I'll have to think about how to use them - maybe emboss over the top. But not this evening.

I also have another star card I'm half way through I'd like to finish, but won't be in time for the challenge launch. I struggled for ages to think what I wanted to do, then the ideas have come flooding in!

To join in with the 52CCT Star challenge, head over to the blog page - you have until midnight BST on Friday 25th May to enter. Have fun with this one - I have!!
