Seeing Stars!

Today's offering is my entry to Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Stars and the Sunday Stamper whose theme is also stars. I really struggled with this, mainly because I kept changing my mind as I went but I thought I should be honest and show you what I came up with! 
It's quite simple so I hope it cuts the mustard! I used two Art Parts with Wendy's star stamp in clear embossing ink and powder on the frame. I then covered both in Peeled Paint Distress Stain. 
The row of stars has small stamped sentiments on it, stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink. There is some kraft paper at the back of the frame with more stars in clear embossing ink. 
I stamped a little bottle onto Clearly for Art and added another star at the top. I had a little ticket to add and two hitch fasteners and two small swivel clasps.

Hi Gabrielle. Very smart use of Wendy's Art Parts to create this beautiful "star" theme piece for Simon Says! I love how you carried the stars even out onto the frame! Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
