I Love You to the Stars and Back
I've had this idea percolating in my head since Sunday and I finally had some time to get my fingers inky. I used two Lawn Fawn stamps sets: Happy Trails and Lucky Stars. I inked the sentiment and stars using Versamark and heat embossed them with clear power. Then it was time for some inky fingers. I used Scattered Straw, Seedless Preserves, a little bit of Dusty Concord and a whole lot of Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink to make my night sky. I really need to get those round blending tools, but I made the rectangle ones and some Tsukineko dabbers work. After stamping out my trees, car and trailer in Momento ink, I colored them pretty simply with my copic markers. Then I cut them out with the matching dies. I decided they needed some grass, so I cut out some green card stock with my Lawn Fawn grassy border die and added a little Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to the edges. Then it was just a matter of building the background with some tape and pop dots.
