I see the moon…

I’m back with another project! Since I’ve been staying up late into the night creating… I thought I’d make a night scene using some Lawn Fawn sets & and the amazing moon set from Altenew called To the Moon.

I first die cut (using black cardstock) Lawn Fawn’s Snowy Backdrop & Stitched Hillside Backdrop (Landscape) along with the trees, house, and heart “smoke” in white so I could color them using my Copic markers.   I initially wanted to do the Distress ink backdrop w/ water splashes etc, but it’s so overdone lately… and I really wanted to make it pitch black, that’s why I decided on the black cardstock.  I did, however, want more sparkle and some twinkle, so I sprayed Sheer Shimmer Spritz all over the Snowy Backdrop. Loved it!! Looks like the night sky is filled with tons of sparkling stars afar.  Then I assembled the two backdrops together using foam tape to give it that dimension.  I did the 2-step stamping using some warm gray inks from Altenew (they have amazing ink combinations for stamping layers) to give that moon some dimension. I stamped the sentiment using the same stamp set, cut it out, and adhered it to background using foam tape.  I stamped out 2 of the smaller bunnies from the Upon a Star stamp set and colored them, die cut them, and found a good place for them under the moon.  After coloring the house, hearts, and trees, I kind of played with the layout and found a spot for all of them.  After adhering everything, I felt like something was needed on the bottom, too much open space, so I die cut some grass using the Grassy Border die and added it below everything.  Of course, I could not stop there… I grabbed my Wink of Stella pen and colored the moon to give the moon some “luminescence”. After letting it dry a bit, I then used a dry baby wipe to rub some of the sparkles off in a circular motion, which made the sparkles fall around the moon… which I thought was a happy accident, as it made it look like a sparkly ring surrounding it. Afterwards, I adhered the entire thing to that silver paper you see behind the project. Some parts of that paper are smooth and shiny (like foil), and the circles were glittery silver… it gave a nice texture that peeks through the stars/dots in the Snowy Backdrop.

Thanks for stopping by…. ♥ Hugs- Kim
