Opus Gluei Challenge #37 Seeing Stars

Okay, so I'm late. Apologies and grovelling understood.....please??

Spent today with friends making all sorts of things: Lydia painting beautiful tropical fish, Dot transforming a plate with delicate asian-influenced birds, Ev photographing images to use on a big square plate, Ali cutting out the last of her birdcage pieces. I had to respond to this challenge because, for one thing, I'd promised.

I made a few other cards before settling do
wn to see stars. I used almost the last of my big 6" glossy black CS as a base and added a white mat and a starry sky DP that I've had for so long I cant remember where I bought it. There are some starry brads, lots of small iridescent embossed stars, and a couple which might be star-shaped black holes, and finally a big glittery silver star because I remembered how to use the SU Heat & Stick powder.

Didn't spill very much.

The sentiment is my favourite one because it fits so many occasions, not to mention whatever mood you might be in. Hope this is starry enough!!


  1. WOW - sounds like you guys had a FABULOUS day - can't wait to see Ali's cage finished!!!
    This card reminds me of a clear night sky with stars twinkling - great job!!!

  2. What a marvelous and creative day you had! Love the card and your use of the stars - very inspirational and don't worry, I know how to update the recap posting (wink) so you're in!

    I'm delighted to see you back playing with us at Opus Gluei - you have been dearly missed!


  3. This is great. I love how elegant and vesatile it is. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I am partly (lots) jealous that you got to play with other artists. You are a lucky lady. Lateness is not a word in our vocabulary, so we don't understand what you are saying.

  4. Welcome back!! I have been checking from time to time to see if you were posting... and to my surprise you are back!! :) Wonderful card and that sentiment is perfect... I could use an Escape now! Ha... :) I haven't been bloging more than a couple times a week.

    LOVE the sparkles on the star!! SMILES :)

  5. It's beautiful Carolann! I love the stars! It seems forever since I've seen the real thing in all its glory. I long to go away from the city lights and see the heavens in all their glory. My kids have never had that experience. Time to remedy!


love to know what you think.......
