My shining star

Hello there! I do hope you are well! Its coffeepot this morning and this is what I have in store for the ladies....

We are going all musical! Stamps by Donna Ratcliff at Crafters companion...all the techniques are the same....

I started by stamping the image and colouring in using distress inks then fussy cutting.

Next came the backgrounds...I used colours from each image but this time in distress oxides to create the backgrounds.

I also included overstamping in the backgrounds in the distress oxides already used. 

I do hope they are going to enjoy themselves!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
