Starry Starry NIght!

Over on Gothic Arch Challenges this week it is stars. I hummed and hahhed (not sure how you  spell this!) about this, and finally used a little stamp from CaroLines, and some charms and the 3 Kings from one of The Artistic Stamper Christmas Plates.
I distress inked the Arch with Faded Jeans , making the bottom very dark, and then made a mistake stamping! Disaster! So I quickly wiped it off, and along came the Arch top layer. So I re-inked it, and then stamped the stars in gold ink, and glued the metal charms on top of the stamped stars. I love the effect of this , despite the major mistake!

Thank you for the challenge.

I nearly missed the silhouettes of the caravan...but once I spotted it, I fell in love...well, that may be a bit over the top, but I really DO love it! : )

Love the technique and I keep singing 'Starry, starry night' now. I had just got it out of my head from when I painted my Vincent van Gogh bag!

Apparently, creativity is making mistakes...ART is knowing which ones to keep...according to some bloke T!m Wotsit...by all accounts he is right LOL
