Gothic Arches Challenge - stars

I wanted to play along with the Gothic Arches challenge again this week and the theme this time is stars. I played with a narrow style arch and sprayed a stencil with glimmer mist to create my woods background and added acetate punched stars adhered with tiara stickles (I haven't found any other type of stickles to be so twinkly and sparkly!!). My columns are pieces of foil tape on cardstock embossed with a cuttlebug folder, then alcohol inked and sanded. Hope it's ok to add columns to an arch.... I found this technique to be a fun way to add some metal to a project and a side benefit is that there are no sharp edges to cause any injuries!
