A Sprinkle of Starlight by Tracey Fairgrieve


Happy Monday everyone, can you believe it's the last day of July already? 


I've been having a sort through some of my That's Crafty! creations and came across this Tag. As it's my day to showcase a make I thought i'd share it with you all and hope to pass on some inspiration using the ever popular Serena from the Serenity Collection.







I started by gluing a piece of watercolour card (an off cut mop up of Distress inks) onto a blank Tag. I then distressed areas of the card using a nail file. Clear 3D gel paste has been pushed through the That's Crafty! Leaves Stencil and left to dry. 

Stars from Lynnes Affirmations Set 1 have been stamped using Versamark and given a dusting of mica powder to bring them to life.







Serena has been stamped on to a gessoed piece of card and coloured using watercolour pencils. She was then cut out along with the heart and layered onto the tag with foam pads and glue. Glitter glue and an embellishment or two have given her that extra sparkle and Gold Lustre wax to bring out the transparent leaves.







Dots and dabs of Frantage Embossing Powder have been added randomly around the tag using a Versamark Pen and heated with a heat tool. Wording stamped and assembled from set 2 of Lynnes Affirmation gives a thought for the day and Gypsy Cord with a handmade charm completes my tag.

Thank you for sharing your time with me again today, until next Monday.

Take Care everyone

Hugs Tracey xx
