To The Moon And Back~ DT Thursday


 Hello Friends!

It's my turn to share a project for DT Thursday at Impression Obsession.  Here is a quick little gift to make.......



Step One~ Cut a piece of card stock that will fit your frame. Stamp Moon And Back C14131
with Versafine Vintage Sepia and emboss with clear embossing powder.


Step 2~ Stamp  Hang In There F8726 on an angle just above and to the left of the sentiment Versafine Onyx Black and emboss with clear embossing powder.  Definitely the most used stamp in my studio!!



 Step 3~Color the clothes pins with Vintage Photo and Antique Linen Distress markers.


Step 4~  Go over the clothes pins with a VersaMarker Pen and  emboss with clear embossing powder. 

Step 5~ Sponge Memento Summer Sky Over the entire image.



Step 6~  Sponge Memento Nautical Blue, inking darker at the top and bottom left. Keeping it lighter in the bottom right hand corner to creating a gradient sky.



Step 7~~ Die cut the moon and 3 stars from the  Sun & Moon DIE163-C set in yellow card stock.  Sponge the edges with Memento Cantaloupe. 



Step 8~ Glitter the 3 stars and moon with Wink Of Stella Clear.



Step 9~ Adhere the Moon and Stars to the top left of image.



Step 10~  Put image in the frame of your choice and make someone's day with it!



 Here is the same image done in the Chalkboard Technique and Prisma Pencils.....




Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

 Onto today's project....
Hey Girl D3905 was stamped with Versafine Onyx black and clear embossed.  It was framed with one of the frames from the All-In-One Frames - Rectangles 2 DIE291-WW  and cut the silver sparkle paper.  

 I do love the  Fancy Butterfly DIE059-N!!  I die cut it in turquoise card stock and sponged it a bit with Memento Grape Jelly Ink.  Before adhering the black piece of the butterfly I touched it up with a wee bit of Wink of Stella Clear for a bit of shimmer that the camera never seems to pick up.
 
 The 3 round embellishments in the bottom right hand corner are just pop dots with microfine glitter burnished in.  


Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
