Always Shoot For The Moon…

Our CCEE challenges this month come from Cindy (Mothermark) who used the song lyrics, Let me tell you bout the birds and the bees (first challenge) and the flowers and the trees (second challenge) and the moon up above…today’s challenge! We had to have a “moon” on our card.

I wasn’t sure just which way I was going to go with this “moon” idea or what set I was going to use. But when I went upstairs to think about it, Melanie’s Inspiration Mosaic from GinaK was sitting there… still uncut, virgin rubber…*gasp*…I had to use it!!

8_17 Shoot for the moon

· Inspiration Mosaic stamped in Black Soot Distress ink on Pure Luxury, embossed with clear ep
· Sentiment stamped in Black Soot, embossed with clear ep
· Moon is reverse masked (I cut a circle with my
Spellbinders Nestie, placed the “hole” where I wanted the moon and colored with Copics, then I dtp’d Versamark and embossed with clear ep
· Sunflowers from
Signs of Autumn, stamped and masked, stamped again, colored with Copics, then I went over them with a Versamarker and embossed with clear ep
· Broken China, Faded Jeans, Weathered Wood & Black Soot Distress ink was then sponged over the entire image
· Layered on glossy and Pure Luxury Green Apple

To see what the other girls did you can go to our CCEE blog.

Today is freezing…not weather-wise but putting up corn and broccoli.

Thanks for stopping!
