Simon Says Stamp and Show ... some Stars!

This week Simon Says Stamp and Show ... some Stars!
I made a cover for a deck of playing cards. My friends and I love to play the card game Pounce. I made this deck for one of my friend's birthday, she LOVES stars. :) I covered the box with Sticky- Back Canvas to make it more durable so she can keep a deck in her purse in case she wants to play.  
The star on the top flap is punched from a piece of cardstock and 2 layers of clear UTEE was applied to it. I sewed on a Tim Holtz snap.

I sprayed the canvas with Key Lime Tattered Angels Glitter Spray.

Next I stamped stars (SU! Stamps) all over the dry canvas using Black Archival Ink. Then I brushed a thin layer of Claudine Hellmuth's Multi Medium all over the canvas to seal and protect it.
Thanks for looking!!
