DCM weekly dare - Celestial

This week at Daring Cardmakers
it was our Keryn's turn to set the dare,
her theme and ours, and yours is.....
Celestial
that's right anything to do with STARS, SPACE, & the HEAVENS...
The sky's the limit...
Well I decided to stretch the theme a little...
and have chosen to base my card on the 'White STAR Line'
I just love those old ships....
Bits I've used are -Stamp-It printed paper, vintage image from the internet, Vintage Astronomy Chart from Art-e-zine, globe stamp, Artistree Joyride stamps, Stampin Up Print Pattern, Making Memories chipboard star- painted white, Artchix studio strip journaling, Wishmade Die-Cut (Adventure), Versa Inkpad, my sewing machine
So have you Dared to DARE yet?...Come on I DARE YOU!!!

This reminds me so much of my journey back from Oz when I was 5, and we travelled on the 'Fair Star' (for 5 and a half weeks!). Thank you for the memories.

You are just the queen of collage Gillian. I love the way you manage to pull it together so that you produce a card that traditional with a twist.

This is a very inspirational piece Gillian. I just got three pages of lovely vintage images and was a bit at a loss what to do with them - you have given me some lovely ideas here. Sometimes one has to 'dare' to stamp a background like that!

Another fabulous card Gillian - I think you should stretch and twist a theme any way it takes your fancy if it lets you come up with stuff like this!

Love your chalk-podge card too - I might have to borrow that technique some time!
