Gold Star Christmas

I am slowly working my way through Sylvia Durocher's monthly Christmas card prompts. I am not doing them in order, so today I will share the prompt from January 2016 - which was to use the colour gold and a 5 or 6 pointed star. I use the Burnished Velvet technique to create my three stars. I used the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge November Sketch for my format.


Using two colours of microfine glitter and wide double sided tape, I created the panel of gold stars against a navy sky. The navy is not so speckled in real life but the camera was picking up the reflection from the glitter. The sentiment is from Penny Black's Festive Cheer set. I am entering this in the Penny Black and More Anything Christmas challenge.
