Love you to the moon and back

That is what my 3 year old tells me all the time - and I tell her "well I love you around and around the sun and back again!" She giggles and goes happily on her way - probably not realizing that I truly do love her that much, and more!

I thought of her when this gorgeous digi image became available through Doodle Pantry.  Isn't it just darling!  The moon itself is just a free clipart on google images that I printed on card.  The little rocket though is something special!

I coloured it with my copics, and then enhanced some of the features like the blue stripes and the flames with some 3D gloss.

Then the magic really begins!  This card is a tilt card!  Yep, I couldn't wait to try this technique out and knew I wanted to do it with this very image before I even saw it!  When you tilt the card left or right, the little rocket spins around madly, just like a real little rocket!!  Okay, so here it is in action:


Aren't they just the neatest cards!  I let the little rocket spin a little slower for you to see, but when you tilt it more, boy does it spin!!

Okay, here's a little closeup of the details:
 You can see that the moon is raised up off the black Bazzill, and the little flag is poked into the moon.  I also used some bling for the stars in various sizes.

Come back later in the week for more cards created with this months new release images at Doodle Pantry!
