No Greater Gift

No new babies anywhere around me, but...just in case...I will be ready!
The image was first stamped on Bristol paper, colored in (with Copics); then I added stickles then diamond glaze. I cut the star and moon images out.

I also stamped the image with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass on my card and pasted the colored pieces on with foam tape. This way, my background stars were blue not black.

  • Stamps: Sleeping Moon SKU:633-01 and no greater gift SKU:633-10 BOTH from
  • Paper: cardstock from my stash; DP from Stella Rose/My Mind's Eye; Bristol paper (images stamped on to color)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Tumbled Glass;
  • Accessories: foam tape, Copics, twine from the Twinery; Martha Stewart edge punches; stick on crystals; diamond glaze; stickles;

Well, I drew from the RED, the three and yummyness.  (If "yummyness" is not a word--and my spell check says it is not--it really should be!)
