Gerda Steiner Guest Designer Call + Share your Design Challenge #2

Hello, everyone! The amazingly talented Gerda Steiner is having a Guest Designer Call for the month of March 2016! I do love her cute little images, so once I came across this Guest Designer Call I decided to throw my name in the hat. Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner I wanted to make something for my loved ones. I chose an adorable "Love you Kitten" digital stamp to work with. And here is what I came up with: 

I used some Distress Inks for the dark blue background and the green grass. Once the sky and the hill were finished, I watercolored the moon and added the fussy-cut image of the kitten. I also colored a shadow in front of the critter, and, in the end, I drew some (better to write lots of ) white dots on the background with a white Gel pen (Do they still look like stars?). I had a lot of fun while doing this project and I think it turned out pretty good.

Now fingers crossed and hope for the best:)
