S is for...Craft Barn Challenge

Well, it's December!  Where did THAT go?!?  This fortnight the letter set by the Craft Barn Challenge is S.  So small a page, so many different things to get on there!!

I decided on S is for: Skyline, Smoke, Sisters, Shimmer, Stamp (of course!!), Stencil, and Stars.  Will my tag be big enough??!

I started by cutting a base of Centura Pearl, which would fold out.  I laid down a roof tops mask - oops, stencil, and then London skyline stencil, and smudged a little distress ink to give me a sunset.  I laid down the other half of both of those stencils to provide a dark outline.

I added tiny drops of stickles to be stars, almost shooting stars in the sky.

On a separate piece of card, I stamped my sisters in versafine, and painted over with Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints.  Definite Shimmer, or Shine!  This is attached to the front flap.

In my usual way, I added my definitions to the tag, which has the letter added, and it slides down between the base page and the picture.  This time I had to use BOTH sides of the tag!!

Hope you like!
