Today when I picked up my mail at the post office, what a nice surprise! My order from Simon Says Stamp was in. I wasn't expecting it until next week. They really outdid themselves this time. This *cottage in the woods* die from Memory Box was one of the goodies I received. Of course, I had to play right away!
I hand cut some more hills and layered them with the die cut in front. To darken up the sky a little I used chipped sapphire distress ink, leaving part of it lighter for a little moon glow.... I didn't do a great job with this, but hopefully I'll get better with practice. Then I punched out the moon and inked it a little bit with antique linen distress ink. I also rounded it slightly with my embossing tool and just glued around the edge. Then I added the sentiment and some stars with a white gel pen. I added a little *wink of stella* (also in my package today) to give them a bit of shine.
Hope today was a good day for you, come back soon!
