Neat & Tangled April Release Day 1


Hi all!  It's April release week at Neat & Tangled!  Today we're showing off a sweet new set from Elena called To the Stars.

I love these cute celestial fairies.  My card today features my favorite who is standing among some clouds with a smiling moon looking on.

Each of the images was colored with Copics and then die cut.

I was a little pressed for time, so I decided to let my patterned paper do all the work when it came to the background.  This is a sheet from Pinkfresh Studio's Indigo Hills 2 6x6 paper pad.  The soft ombre wash was just right for my colored images.  I added a few stamped stars (using an image from the set) with Altenew Peach Perfect ink to add a bit of additional texture/interest.


The sentiment is also from the To the Stars set.

I added a white frame created using the largest of the scalloped dies with a center opening cut out using a rectangular die. 

Normally I would trim the base piece down so that you don't see it outside the frame, but when I was trying it out, I really liked the look of it peeking out from behind the scallops. 

That's all for me today.  Be sure to head over to the Neat & Tangled blog and check out what the rest of the team created.  Leave a comment there to be entered to win this set.
