Celestial birthday

I had to pull out some old stamps for this one. I stamped the sun and moon in black on white cardstock, pulled out my watercolour pencil crayons, and went to work. Good thing I had some Robin Hood episodes to watch because this sure took a while. I love the detail though and it was totally worth it. I also used my Sakura Stardust glitter pen to accent the faces and the outer corners. I used thin dimensionals to mount the images on plain cardstock, then put those on thicker dimensionals.
The background paper does actually have hints of blue, although it doesn't show well in this photo. I used some edge stamps in silver to make the lines, then embossed them with clear EP. The sentiment was written in silver ink. Overall, I like it, although I am a little iffy on the background paper. It does look better in person though. My camera is not great at night with the lights in my appartment.
Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow!
