twinkle twinkle little star!

Hey there bloggers,
well hey there bloggers, wow what a week, I have been inspired by Tim's 12 days of tags, although still have tag 1,2 and 3...half done!!The tags and Tim's talent are amazing and I have to say I have been shocked that despite having a huge crafty stash and being very lucky there have had to be a couple of purchases and much improvisation..but plenty of inky fun and many more goodies for Santa's list!!!
Anyway, here is my tag for Sunday stampers hosted by the fab Hels @  http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/. This tag has been waiting to be blogged for half the week!!!So here she is:
I started by dividing the tag into two halves.The right hand side was inked, then over stamped with a text script in broken china. Once dry I spritzed with perfect pearls in pearl.The stars were stamped using a cover stamp from craft stamper designed by the very talented Jo Capper-Sandon.They were stamped in snow white paint dabber and then filled in with crackle glaze to give a soft subtle finish!!
The left hand side was covered with Tim tissue wrap, which had been coloured with picket fence distress stain.The 3-d stars used the same stamp and were covered with glossy accents and then some pearl glitter, thanks mum!

I am entering this for the following challenges:
