Say, its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me
~ lyrics by Harold Arlen, 1933
Howdy, Stampers! If you’ve hopped here from the 3rd annual Mother of All Blog Hops (sponsored by There She Goes Clears Stamps) here’s a big ‘ole Texas Welcome. Don’t get too comfortable in that saddle, though, because I’m taking you to outer space and then it’s “Onward Ho” to your next stop.
I’m supposed to tell you that over the next two days we customers and trendsetters will be featuring some of our favorite There She Goes Clear Stamp sets. Yes Ma’am! And, we’re giving you a chance to win some fabulous prizes! To find out how, just go to the There She Goes blog for all the juicy details.
I had a hard time picking just one favorite so I decided to pay tribute to Houston’s Nasa Space Center. (Gotta represent Texas, right?) So . . . Houston, We have Lift-off!
My little astronaut is fussy cut, paper pieced and Copic colored. To color his face I used my standbys: Copic Markers E30, E11, and E000 and some Stampin’ Up! Pastels (chalks) for his cheeks. I just let the stamp set, Out of This World, and the October Afternoon Rocket Age paper do all the rest.
