Star of Wonder Star of Light

Thanks for hopping by to see my holiday tag! My inspiration was the the Christmas carol "We Three Kings", one of my favorites. It's a simple tag with the focus squarely on the star. I painted the wispy streaks in the black sky with white acrylic paint using a dry brush technique. I stamped my small cloisonne star twice on silver cardstock using silver embossing powder. I cut the stars out and glued them together before adding them to the tag. The text was printed on my computer. I added the S from my alphabet set to complete the title. A sprinkling of lesser stars using a silver pearl pen and some silver gray ribbon completes the composition. Now hop on over to Joanna's blog to see her beautiful tag!
