Sunday Stampers - Week 59 - Walking On The Moon

Morning Stampers!

Well, today is a very special day...my dear friend Andrea and her daughter Sophie will have been walking thru the night on the Playtex Moon Walk - walking the full marathon distance around London.....and the best bit is they are doing all of this in their fancy decorated bra's!!! Hope it isn't cold for them! BTW, why are they doing this? Are they mad? Nah! They are raising funds for Breast Cancer charity and so far they have managed to raise a whopping £2,054 ... fabbbby!

As I type (which is just after midnight) I guess they will just be starting out on their walk and to honour this marvellous thing that they are doing...well, the theme had to be something about walking...and something about the moon....so, the theme this week can be either the Moon or Walking....or both! LOL

I made a card to start off with...using Stamp Francisco moon stamps and Paper Bag Studio's shoe stamps I blended Distress Inks to get the colours I wanted and then added Glossy Accents and Stickles to the moons.



The next thing I made is a bit more to do with the moon...well, if you want to get there you are going to be needing a Rocket. And it just so happens that Dan has a rocket as his free download this week.....go on, you know you want to pop on over to his blog....have a look at his amazing artwork too...you will be there ages!!




For the Rocket, I used the same Stamp Francisco moons and Fired Brick Distress Inks for the main part and for the exhaust I used Pro Markers.

As ever with the Sunday Stamper, all you need to do to join in is make something...any piece of art will do, and incorporate some stamping on your piece, leave a comment here for me with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can hop on over to have a look.

Thanks for looking and there is still time to sponsor Andrea and Sophie on their worthwhile cause.....if you click here you can be transported to the Just Giving page they have set up!

Have a fun day!

Hels xx


***UPDATE*** I met up with Andrea and Sophie this morning...bless them, they had done the whole lot in just under 7 hours!!! How amaaaaaazing is that!!!!!!!
