Catch a Falling Star...
...and put it in your pocket :-).
I got the lovely stamp 'Catch a Falling Star' by Leanne Ellis from the Sugar Nellie Stamps shop online.
This is the card I made with it yesterday:
The base card is 6 x 6 inches (again...I have a thing for big squares just now ;-). The little 'sticks' poking out from under the main image layer were an accident...I had trimmed bits lying about and they got caught up behind the main image, and then I thought they kinda looked cool, so I added more...et voila! There is Crystal Effects on the red flower in her hair, on the dots on her skirt and on the star.
I am going to put a sentiment in the bottom left hand corner of the Whisper White layer...but didn't get around to it before snapping these shots. I'll use a Stampin' Up! rub-on because these are the BEST. Have I mentioned that before...Hmmmmm?
Ingredients (all from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Catch a Falling Star (Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie Stamps)
Cardstock: Night of Navy (textured), Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun and Whisper White
Ink: various Copic Markers
Accessories: Good Morning Sunshine DSP, Crystal Effects, SNAIL and Dimensionals.
While I was outside taking snaps the kids were hovering about going 'take one of me Mum, take one of me'...so I did:
Mr Almost-three is far too quick for me...this shot was out of focus on the left hand side...so I just cropped it out!
And another fabulous Autumn day draws to a close...
