  3. Use Night of Navy and a sponge dauber to lightly go over colours – keep dauber to a vertical motion.
  4. Stamp image on art panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  5. Sponge Night of Navy under the image to ground it.
  6. Punch star from Glimmer Paper and attach over star image. Attach panel to front of easel.
  7. Cut a panel for the middle of the card 14.3cm x 10cm. Add some stripes down each side with sponge daubers from step 2 without reinking them. Attach panel to card.
  8. Stamp sentiment on scrap white, layer with scrap Razzleberry and add to middle of card with dimensionals. This will hold the easel panel open.
  9. As a final step, add Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details to represent rays from the big star, and as small stars on the art panel.
