.. to the Moon and back.

Happy Friday guys! :)

I'm stopping by with a post today to share a very special project I made back last month! 

This was a commission for a lovely lady who was after something a little different for a shadow box to hang in her little girls room!!


I used the adorable Wryn Cloud 9 from Tiddly Inks.

This is my first attempt at a Distress Ink background, and I'm not gonna lie - I was impressed with how well I actually managed to make it look! LOL! I was totally winging the whole thing, but hey, hey. :) It didn't make me wanna rush out and buy more Tim Holtz goodies though, which is probably a good thing. 

I coloured Wryn up with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers - I was told that the little girl was a tom boy, NO PINKS OR PURPLES ALLOWED - I was cool with that. ;) I went with orange and mint green instead.

I created the sentiments with a Lawn Fawn alpha stamp set, then added a bunch of Wild Orchid Craft goodness. Loads of Liquid Pearls and Stickles. Some embossed silver stars, a 3d vellum star and some distressed edges! 

I hope this does the job on the little girls bedroom wall. Just a little reminder of the love she has around her. So sweet! :) 

Enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by. xo
