Over the moon

Hi everyone,

A new Monday means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week is all about the moon. Perhaps you have amazing space themed stamps or you have a different idea while thinking of the moon. Share it with us! We love to see what you came up with.

I've altered the title of the challenge a bit, but the moon is still the focal point of my card, as you can see... I started with making the background blue with Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. These colors I use rarely. But perfect for a nighty sky! The School house stencil with Black Soot gave it a sort of intergalactic feel, along with the Cherish stamp with some Archival Jet Black Ink.

I made a template for the moon with the greatest of Sized Circles. I used a palette knife to apply Copper Crackle Texture Paste and waited over night to dry. Because the paste is very liquid, a halo appeared around the moon, love that! But unfortunately it also warped the paper a lot when it dried. It was a tricky task to adhere the warped base onto the card.

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

How cool this is - the colors, the halo (!), the composition. And darn it, now I know I really do need those thinlit alpha dies!

I love your moon. I want to try that Prima Copper Crackle Texture Paste. I think the halo around the moon is perfect too. It fits.
