Don’t Quote Me! The Inspiration Emporium May Challenge

Over at the Inspiration Emporium, our May challenge is Don’t Quote Me (or, actually do, because we asked our friends to create art using a favorite quote).

For me, this was a perfect opportunity to strut my geek cred, hence the wonderful, hopeful quote from one of my heroes, Carl Sagan…which of course led me to think of “Billions and billions of stars…” which led to a non-Christmasy use of the fabulous Tim Holz Sizzix Star Bright 3D die.

I love how the new metallic Distress Paints gave the star a distressed, industrial look. I used all three colors, made a little puddle on my nonstick craft sheet, and blotted up the paint with the star, which was cut from Grunge Paper. With a little Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste for texture and some Dylusions stenciling, the background got all cosmological and big bang-y. Bazinga!

Today’s the final day of the Don’t Quote Me challenge, so if you haven’t already, please be sure to link in your project at the Inspiration Journal, and you might just win a $50 shopping spree at Inspiration Emporium! SWEET!

Enjoy the last hours of May, you guys, and have a fantastic weekend!
