Seeing the Stars at Lollipop Ladies!

The latest challenge at the Lollipop Ladies is
 Number #73 - Stars and Sparkle

Here is the inspiration photo - look at all those primary colours!
Sparkle is easy to find and so are stars - what are you waiting for!

I have created a card by first playing and creating quite a mess! I decided to have a bit of a play with the bottles of Time Holtz Distress ink that you use to swipe and splat and generally paint card and stuff with, and with the bottles that have that little dropper like the medicine bottles used to have, and where the ink is all thick, syrupy and juicy! I have a mixture of colours and types that have somehow multiplied in the dark in the bottom of the cupboard! Might have to get a spray to stop that!

Firstly I splatted, then I dropped and then I dragged a stick through and then I found it took over 24 hours to dry!I did this on a sheet of white shiny SU card. I stamped the sentiment using a MFT stamp and TH Distress Ink Salty Ocean. 

I scrounged through my box of stars and found two that suited - the light blue one has a bit of sparkle on it, and the dark blue one is shiny and sparkly. I added some bling randomly (that is sooooo hard for me to do) and then add one more - so now I have an even number, against the rules - but in a different colour! The whole lot is mounted onto SU Pacific Blue card, and white bazzil folded into a card shape.

I have decided you could repeat this in red, or green or yellow if you wanted.........but I am done.
