I See the Moon.....

...and the Moon Sees Me
God Bless the Moon and 
God Bless Me!

Our ATC group is swapping Nursery Rhyme ATCs tonight, so I thought I'd go with something short and sweet and oh-so-comforting.  I started by stamping the girl image (from Crafty Secrets' Sweet Kids set) and the moon (called Senor Luna, a lovely little freebie tucked in with my Third Coast Rubber Stamps order).  I then masked them off and added a background using Distress Inks (Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed).  I colored the images with Copics and added a touch of sparkle to the hearts with Stickles.  I computer-generated the text and printed it onto Papertrey Ink's white sticky back paper, colored it with Distress Inks (Wild Honey and Mustard Seed), cut the lines of text into strips, then cut off the words as I peeled them off the backing paper.  I added a little Distress Stickles around the edge of this panel, then mounted the whole thing onto some pretty, nighttime-sky-looking patterned paper.  These sweet images were so much fun to play with.

Can't wait to see what the ladies have for us tonight.  If I think of it, I'll ask them if they mind if I post everyone's ATCs..... I always want to, but then I always forget to ask permission..... old noggin isn't what it used to be, LOL!

The images on that CS set are really sweet, aren't they?! Love the idea of her dreaming in the moonligh in her hammock and you're created the perfect moonlit effect with the ink - lovely!

Such a scrummy sweet ATC....the nursery rhyme is not familiar to me in the UK. I dont why but I thought we would share nursery rhymes as we share a language...duh! Do you know "Jack n Jill" or "Humpty Dumpty" lol?

Jean...thank you so much for the comments on my blog.....they did make me smile...and that's always a good thing!

Did you remeber to ask if you could show us the group's ATCs? If like me ...prob not as you possibly got carried away chatting and crafting!

Take care Suz x
