Wish upon a .....Star

This month Gingersnap Creations are having a Random Redhead moment and have given an extra challenge in the form of 'Stars'.



I used a star shaped piece of chipboard and created multi layers of stamping and Croco Crackle (see PaperArtsy posts below for details).

The inspiration from this came from a tin of beans...the ring pull came off in my hand and I had that "oh great :0(...oh! great! :0) " moment lol



If you take part in the challenge theres a chance to win a gorgeous Stampsmith stamp.

Oh my - stunning - I will be making sure that I only buy tins with ring pulls on in the future - I try to avoid them as they always pull off on my hand too - before they pull the lid off!
