Starry Night with Gingersnaps Creations

Hello, this week sees a new monthly theme over at  Gingersnap Creations  - they have asked the DT to work with the theme"HOLIDAY LIGHTS" and this week's challenge is:-

Starry Night

Now I have had this piece finished for a few weeks and its been hanging on the dining room wall above the fire.  I had the pleasure of attending another wokshop with the very talented Christine Costello at the Cubby Hole entitled "Steampunk Winter Canvas".

I had a wonderful day and loved all the elements used here.  I had help from Christine with the wire twisting etc....I seemed to have no strength in my fingertips though I was recovering from my bout of gastric flu!
The Stampotique owl was stamped onto silver mirri card with a touch of Stazon ink added, eyelets and beads completed him!
I won't go into too much wordy detail.   All the techniques are well known soI shall show you in photos.
I have added my stars and further added the gorgeous Penny Wise Arts micro beads from our generous challenge sponsor once home.  I decided on opaque antique silver micro for my beads and must say these were gorgeous to work with!

I am entering my Winter/Seasonal altered canvas into the following challenges:-

Let's Ink It Up - "Christmas Project"

Simon Says Stamp & Show - "Time Pieces"
Cogs and watches (on shrink plastic) used.


Cards & More Challenge - "Snowflakes"
Hot air balloon, owl and all shrink plastic pieces are stamped.

Thanks for stopping by.  Suzanne ~x~

Okay, duh, I thought it looked like too much for just a card--no wonder, it's a canvas!

Now THAT makes more sense; I tend to look at the pics and not read carefully, sorry about that!!!
