SHOPPING OUR STASH #417 - Under the Sun, Moon and Stars

Hello and welcome crafty friends!
We have a fun challenge starting today at
As the title suggests, we are looking for projects that have
the Sun, Moon, and Stars on them. Use one, two or all of them!
Here's what I came up with:

I used a couple stamps that I bought the beginning of last year, and only now
have inked up. (I know, the shame!)
To make the starry sky, I just smeared the lighter blue ink randomly around the stamp,
stamped using my MISTI (a stamping platform is a HUGE help if you want
to try this) re-stamping a couple times more, then, leaving the remaining ink on the
stamp (for reference), did the same using the darker blue. You can also go
back with the lighter blue again if you want. I stamped the tree line in black ink
a few times. In hindsight, I should have embossed that in black EP, but oh well.
Admittedly, the sentiment stamp is only a few months old (in my craft room) It's from 
a set of random sentiments that I heat embossed in white EP a couple weeks ago,
and I'm determined to use as many of them as possible. (Instead of, you know,
just adding them to the UFO pile) I also used some Star Dust Stickles to
randomly dot some of the stars.

I hope that you find some time (really now, we all have the time these days), to 
play along this fortnight at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see your
take on our challenge! For more ideas, do check out what my teammies
have created to inspire you!
