my moon and stars (Moxie Fab, ATCAS)

Stars are trendy, have you noticed? (Duh. Cristina K. called that one months ago.) Structure paste too, have you tried it yet?  I'm (finally) using some I got at Aldi several years ago when I thought I was going to venture into acrylic painting.  Thought.

Well I'm gleaning inspiration from the cardmakers who are taking the Online Cards Stenciled class and providing tons of great ideas.  Here's my version.

Not seeing the stencil?  Well, I made my own.  Just die cut one larger and two smaller stars from a piece of cereal box and moved the die-cut negative around to add the structure paste to random spots.  TIP:  Be careful where you lay the "stencil" down so that you don't smear wet paste ;)

Also made the moon stencil by die cutting a larger circle and die cutting a portion of a smaller circle from it.  Added that portion back into the larger circle negative to get my stencil for the crescent shape.  Capice?  Hard to tell but those are gold polka dot washi strips peeking out from behind the image.  So hard to get a decent photo when the sun won't come out.  I like this Studio Calico rub-on -  a bit different from the "to the moon and back" that's out there these days.

I love moons and stars so it's easy for me to love this card! But I also like that you made your own stencil, especially the moon one is amazing! All in all it has this artsy-Maria feeling that I just love!

The things you can do with cereal boxes! Fab card - it's got a lovely dreamy quality with the pearly glow on the moon and the distress spatters. Nice sentiment too.

This is beautiful, it reminds me of the book The Little Prince. :)

Love this! When I read your post I thought "yikes, I would totally smear the paste if I moved it around!" You are just that skilled : )
