I was able to work with this amazing digi called Talking With The Moon, from one of my favorite digi artists, A Day For Daisies
I made the background paper with inks by using the Mono Printing technique.(I will do a tutorial on this soon) With a SU roller stamp I embossed stars and swirls with Agean Silver ep.
The edges were inked with a sponge and silver Adirondack Mixatives.(LOVE that stuff!)
The three metal stars with vellum are tags, I believe from Memory Makers? They have been in my stash for years so I was happy to finally use a few.
I added some iridescent tinsel into a mini glass bottle and wrote, "Moon Beams" on Chalk Tape with a white gel pen.
"Dream Of Me" is from a PSX mini rubber stamp set called Pixie Romance, and the "Dreamroad" metal sign is from Prima st. signs.
I also added Liquitex Glass Beads Texture Gel to the spaces between the embellishments as well as on the moon.
The TH ink nib says, "Memories" on it. I also added a strip of TH film strip with glitter brads.
I fussycut the beautiful moon and fairy with an Xacto knife, added pop dots to the back and glued dewdrops onto the moon strands. They kind of look like eyeballs to me. I love the moon watching over you. X
So Fun, Sparkly, and Dripping with baubles and delight!
Thanks for stopping in and joining us on this hop!
Remember to leave some love for me for a $12 gift certificate from A Day For Daisies.
Next up is the wonderfully creative Jasmine so be sure to leave her some love as well.

Happy 50th Campers-Anniversary-Kenny K

Today I'm sharing the card I made for the parents of a friends of ours.
They're celebrating their 50th Golden Wedding Anniversay!
They are avid campers and love playing cards and they have a fun personality so I thought they would really enjoy this image from Kenny K digis called Wedding Dance.
I also used part of another digi from Saturated Canary, called Winnie goes camping.
A bit of a mashup but it gets the story across.
The "Happy Camper" sentiment was from a newly acquired cling stamp set.
 I have no idea what company it was as I've already thrown the packaging away.
The fabulous back ground paper is Teressa Collins.
I used UTEE to cover the chipboard "50" and sprinkled some at the bottom of the card so it looks like the wedding couple are dancing on streets of gold.
I also added a couple TH playing cards and some Prima glitter flowers and some amber colored Recollections.
The image was colored with Copics,and I used liquid pearls on the veil.
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!

Bird On My Fairy Toe-DT Card For The Corrosive Challenge Blog

I'm a few days late with my challenge card but better late than never!
I had gone to a Steampunk Crop last weekend and brought my colored up image, ready to make a card with but was unable to find where I had packed it and thought for sure it was sitting on my desk at home. 
When I got home after midnight and checked everywhere in the house that I thought it could possibly be and couldn't find it, I decided to go through(put away) my crop supplies, and of course found it stuck between a couple sheets of paper.
Well I didn't get much done at the crop except some shopping, eating, and socializing.
It was a lot of fun and I had a great time dressing up Steampunk for it!
Oh I won first prize for best costume too!
And then I won the best door prize they were giving out!!
Good times with my partner in crime, Jan!

Today I'm sharing the card I made for the newest Challenge at The Corrosive Challenge Blog.
The theme is Add A Banner.
Our sponsor is Sami Stamps
 I've chosen to use this whimsical image called Bird On My Fairy Toe.
The paper is from a Prima paper pack called Art Journal and the banner I used was made from glitter paper and a MFT  banner die cut.
The sentiment is from a retired Totally Stampalicious stamp.
If you have a project that fits into our Banner theme be sure to link it up at TCCB to win a $12 gift certificate to Sami's shop.
For more inspiration checkout some of my teamies cards on Sami's blog.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
