To the moon and back....!!

Hey everyone, 
Hope you are all well and having lots of fun crafty time...
had an order for a valentine card for a male to make today, so I headed into my craft room and grabbed two stamps from the Winner takes all collection 
-Super Edwin
( I find it harder to make cards for men because I always want to add pretty girly things lol!! )

Yulis had recently made a card using a sky background technique so I thought I would try it out...
you can pop over to yulis's blog here - she always has lots of beautiful work to share!!

Here is my go at the sky technique!!
The distress inks I used were -weathered woon and -stormy sky

I sprayed the background with maya pearl mist, lindys stamp gang sprays and a goosebump spray..
The moon is covered in glossy accents, then to add texture I heat dryed it so it bubbled.


The text stamp is from Kaiser craft..I thought it suited this card and these winner takes all collection stamps well!!


I added in some cheesecloth, string pearls, glitter and lace...thought I'd better not add flowers to this one lol...although I was tempted!!

Let me know what you think of my male card...??
Also it was my first go using the Langton hot press smooth paper to colour my image on (after it finally turned up...)
