Time Out #80 - Inspired by Words

Hi everyone!  The challenge over at Time Out this week is Inspired by Words.  Here's the words:
"When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars"
So I went with rainbow colors and stars.  I happened to find this stars die in my die collection and die cut it from Bristol smooth white cardstock.  I colored all the stars with Zig markers in the rainbow colors.  I took the negative piece and adhered it to a piece of black cardstock.  Then I painstakingly adhered dimensional tape to each star and inlaid into the opening.  Love how the black shows through a bit.  I wasn't going to use the black cardstock originally, but I'm glad I did!  Each star is covered with Spectrum Noir shimmer.  I added the sentiment to tie the black into the background and some crystals to finish it off.
You can see more from the Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Marilyn, on the Time Out blog.
We are also sponsored by Uniko, so check that out as well while you are at the blog.

This is one of my fav cards, I love how the stars cascade down and wow this must have taken ages. The black base and sentiment really add drama x

Wow Lisa, what a brilliant idea with this die! The black card peeking behind the stars looks amazing and the shimmer on the stars looks surely wonderful IRL. Great job!

This is wonderful Lisa, and well worth the painstaking process. The black peeking out is fantastic, and the black strip with the sentiment goes so perfectly with it. I love it.

This is fabulous Lisa ! At first sight I thought you adhered the stars with black foam ! How great they look after such a hard work sticking them ! Gorgeous layout and wonderful rainbow colours ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.

This card is simply beautiful Lisa - that little bit of black peeking through from under the stars really completes the card - it may have been fiddle to do but definitely worth it! Love the play on the inspirational words by combing both stars and rainbows too - such a creative idea!
