I Love the way the stars from the focal star scatter into the BG! Excellent job in every way!

This is a fun tag that I received form Marshia! The star reminds me of a sugar cookie! yummy! and I like the silver stars in the BG as well as the way you did the stripes!

Good job!

Wonderful tag!! Sorry you had trouble with it, I think the end result came out great! Love the big star. Such a patriotic tag! TFS and swapping:-)

Marshia if you hadn't said anything, I wouldn't know you had any problems. Your tag looks good to me. The paste star kind of looks like a sugar cookie with sprinkles on it.

I really like this, but I understand that it was quite a process! lol. I like your overall design a lot. The stripes of paper give such a good base for the rest of the stamping and the paste star. The tag overall has just the right amount of white, imo. TFS!

This tag was made for Melissa. As I mentioned in an earlier post I had lots of issues getting it done. The first attempt the stenciled star was so rough that it looked like I threw the stencil paste at the tag. LOL. Then I decided I wanted the vertical row of stars under the paste star so I started over laying the stripe first. The stencil paste got me again because just before it dried completely I put my fat finger in the wet paste, back to square one. Finally past the stenciling part I decided to impress additional stars into the star and add embossed stars to the tag. The embossing powder stuck everywhere! It must have been the humidity. I thought I'd gotten all the stray powder but when I heated it clearly I hadn't. Then I decided to add color to the impressed stars and that ink spread into the paste. let me just say, not my best work but I honestly gave it every bit of time and effort AND I learned lots of lessons.
