"Seeing stars...and a comet"
Two panels of white card are sponged with layers of distress ink. The smaller panel is stamped and decorated with Perfect Pearls. The larger, darker panel splattered with water droplets and dried with a heat tool, obtaining a faux bleach effect to resemble a night sky.
You can see the droplet effect in the background panel quite well in this closeup photograph.
A couple of townscape diecuts are made from old cat food boxes. The individual houses are decorated with metallic distress stains, then fixed to the front of the card with glossy accents. Distress markers are used to colour inside the windows, then each of the windows is filled with glossy accents and left to dry.
The "comet" is a gold star button from my stash, with the loop removed from the back to let it stick down flat. It's "tail" is made up from individual beads (from a necklace that broke the first time I wore it - knew those beads would come in handy for something :-)).
The "eye in the sky" could be Patrick Moore looking down and admiring the comets from a different angle this year. R.I.P. Sir Patrick Alfred Caldwell-Moore CBE, FRS, FRAS (4 March 1923 – 9 December 2012)
