Good Morning Starshine!

The earth says hello! Can you guess the film or the same musical the son appears in? It was a favourite when I was a teenager. Loved it!

I'm back with leftovers from the last card I made, pretty neat to use them for another card at once.

Southern Girls: You spin me round
Time Out Challenges: Fun In The Sun
Pixie's Snippets Playground: Use Snippets
Fab'n'Funky: Feels like summer
Charisma Cardz: Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks: Inspired by a song

Materials used:
Paper Smooches image and sentiment printed with brown ink, Promarkers for colouring ( I used three colours to get some depth), snippets for layering.

The background was made with Hero Arts large rain drop stamp, I stroke Distress inkpads on it, starting with Scattered Straw, then Tea Dye and at last Aged Mahogany. The large ink pads are great for that technique too, haven't been spending on the small ones yet.

The paper piece I cut out an oval from with a Nestie; was trimmed and mounted on 3 D squares onto a yellow cardstock strip I found.

Thank you so much for visiting sweeties, it really means the world to me. If your part of the world isn't cloudy check out for the super moon or perigee moon for the scientist, super moon has a better cling doesn't it?

Love and hugs
