I hadn't actually planned on making this; I had just bought Fallout 4 and had intended to play it all night until I realized when I stuck it into my Xbox One that it had to install first. After I shed a few tears (I joke!! Mostly...), I decided to throw a little something together while I waited. Inspired by the challenge at Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge blog, I grabbed my Little B Stitched Star dies and cut a frame for the front of the shaker as well as the background star. My plan was to make something that represented the North Star.
Once I cut the stars out, I used Chipped Sapphire and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink to color the background, to which I added stars using white watercolor paint. I also cut hills using Simon Says Stamp's Stitched Hills dies and a house and trees using their Village die. I used foam tape to make room to add some white seed beads and some sequins. My first thought had actually been to turn this into a card, but I actually liked the star shape and thought it made an excellent ornament, so I grabbed some white and blue twine and threaded it through the star using a needle. I love how it turned out!
I'm entering this into the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge
EDIT: OMG so excited! I was selected for a Designer Spotlight for this ornament on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog challenge! Here's my Badge below!
