Ink Blended Halftone Stars

by Laura

Hi there! Laura here and today I have a fun project to share featuring the Halftone Stars stamp set & coordinating Halftone Stars nesting die set.

Altenew-Halftone StarsTo begin I blended a vibrant blue background using the blue inks from the Glacier Caves ink set onto Bristol paper. Then I die cut several larger stars onto a panel of white cardstock and popped it up over the ink blended background.

I popped up smaller stars in the centers that were blended with Citrus Burst & Honey Drizzle. I couldn't resist adding one final layer of teeny tiny stars that were die cut with glittered cardstock. To finish it off I embossed a sentiment from the Halftone Stars stamp set in white onto a strip of black cardstock.

So pretty. I’ll admit I was worried about the card stock being too floppy when you cut out ALL of those stars, but it turned out Grrreat.

MUCH prefer the dark spots to the water splatters. Although I love spatters of white or black or whatever paint in tiny dots I’ve never like the water spatters. But I really love the way the Altenew inks changed color and the job you did on the blending was awesome. It was a gorgeous background! That with the dark spots was the whole deal to me. Oh yeah, and the cookie story.

What a most fabulous card! The way you used the negative of the biggest star is genius and then filling in with popped up smaller stars is perfect!! The blue and yellow is an awesome colour combination. The cookie story – love it!
