to the stars (Neat and Tangled release week)

Hi there!

If you're looking for today's Lawn Fawn post, scroll down or click HERE. I'm pulling double postings for the rest of the week!

Welcome to April's Neat and Tangled release week. We tease you with the new collection for a few days until it hits the store on Friday morning (April 19th.)

On day 1, we're showing off a set that I illustrated, called To The Stars. I've been wanting to do a fairy set for a long time, but I've seen enough cute garden fairy sets to steer clear of that kind and go a more celestial route.

This set features 3 fairies, a few puffy clouds, a constellation and the cutest moon.

To the stars (Neat and Tangled release week)

I perched the daintiest fairy atop the moon, and positioned a few clouds and constellations all around. Using the oval dies from the Card Front Designs die set, I created an aperture to house all of the focal images. I love that by nesting the oval dies together, I could create a thin frame. I love little finishing touches like that!

To color the clouds and the moon, I opted for light greys (Copic markers T0, T1) since I used a night-sky patterned paper. You guys, I think this is my last scrap of this paper. I have been hoarding it for so long! I wish I knew who made it and where I could get some more!

To get different sizes of constellations, I simply snipped off a star or 2. Easy peasy. In the stamp set, I also included a lone star and a tiny line image - you could create a whole backdrop of unique constellations!

I love the sentiment included in the set. Originally, I included the usual "love you to the stars" but my good friend Bethany suggested I go PAST the stars - so magical!

I hope you like this new set! Stayed tuned for a smaller, companion set that will debut tomorrow!  Be sure to check out the NT blog this morning (click!). 

GIVEAWAY: before you go, leave me a comment! Danielle will choose a lucky winner from among all of the design team's blogs this week. On Friday morning she will announce the winner of a $25 store gift card. Good luck!
