Boon & Jitters - Little Miss Muffet Inspiration Post

Happy Thursday!
I really wish that today was Friday...this week has been going by a bit slow for me, and I'm just ready for the weekend :)

I had a load of fun coming up with my card for this weeks inspiration at Little Miss Muffet.  I'm super sad though that this is my last week as their guest designer!  It's been so amazing to share this month with the incredibly talented team there and I'm so thankful for the opportunity!!

I decided to make a card using my very first image ever purchased from LMM, which also happens to be my favorite :)

A couple weeks ago I won an amazing prize from Hero Arts/Jennifer Mcguire for 2 sets of the Spectrum Noir colored pencils, and they arrived in the mail the other day!!  Just in time to make up this sweet card!  I need a lot of practice with them still, but my first impression is that I love them :)

To start my card, I clear embossed some stars from the Lawn Fawn Starry Backdrops set onto watercolor paper and them used a few Stampin Up ink pads to color in the background.  I did the whole smoosh them on the craft mat, spray them with water and drop your paper on technique :)

I did a few layers to get it sort of how I wanted, and then went around the edges with a blender to give just a little more definition.  I think it turned out super awesome!  That was my first time doing a background that way!  Then I used the Stitched Journaling die and made my focal panel.  I blended together a light purple, pink, and yellow for the background.  I die cut out the clouds and layered them up all dreamy like on my focal panel.

Once my Boon & Jitters image was colored, I cut them out and then adhered them with dimensional tape to the clouds.  The sentiment is heat embossed in white, and I stamped a few random little stars in the sky, along with adding a few sparkly die cut stars for extra pop.

I really love to whole fantasy/fairytale feel to this card.  It was so fun, and something completely different for me to make!
