Welcome Home!

When I saw the sketch for this week's Mojo Monday I knew just what I wanted to do. It just took me a couple days to get the time to sit down and make my vision. Little boys take up a lot of time and energy! Finally tonight I decided to stay up late and get my fingers inky - or in this case, painty!

I have been pondering this challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays, a movie inspiration challenge! I was kind of casually (lol) planning a Princess Bride card when the Mojo Sketch came through - and I immediately saw that iconic ET image of the bike going over the moon! I was off to find a bike image...sure I had that set that went with the Lucky! I grabbed my Pair-a-Phrase set and the adorable little flower basket bike image. Just what I needed!

I built most of my card in Moonstruck Cardstock. I embossed the background with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. Then I cut a 2 1/2 inch circle on my Cricut and embossed that with my Big Dots folder. The moon got painted with Pearl Paint. Then I dabbed it thickly with a lightly blue tinted Pearl Paint (Lots of paint, one tiny drop reinker) for texture, and then I sprayed the whole moon with Silver Glitter spray. After I colored my bike in with Tulip and Grey Wool Markers I went over the rims with more pearl paint tinted Grey Flannel and added bitty sparkles to the wheels.

This movie challenge was a lot of fun - be sure to go check out all the clever movie cards on CAS-ual Friday! And here's the sketch from Mojo Monday. It's contest week, so be sure to toss your hat in the ring too!
