Some times it takes a lot of things to make a card............the challenge this month at Craft a Scene is moonlight.......and boy oh boy did I struggle with this one. My wastebasket is over flowing and my fingers have all kinds of distress inks on them. To be honest, I don't think I have ever made a card with the shining moon in it, I have drooled over other peoples creations.
So I searched and checked out blogs and galleries.....did some shopping....and then I came across this stamp from Stampendous, and I knew I had to buy it. The sample I saw at the store was done without a moon, and with Tim Holtz inkers, and those I don't have so.....I worked with what I do have , and believe me I am not short of anything, LOL. So I played with different colours distress inks and sponges, here is a list of the colours that made it for my final project:
I tried hard to bring in some light and darker colour tones and to show the moon light shining in the water. Glitter came out too but I quickly discovered that that was not gonna work for me. After I was happy with the image, I cut it out, matted it on a scalloped rectangle, used a Crafts Concepts embossing folder,fiskars border punch, some twine, black Viva pearls and a sentiment from Stampendous. So that is all about this card, a little bit of me and a whole lot of another unknown, talented crafter. My next card will be all me, I promise, but sometimes we all need a little help.
Hop on over to the blog and I hope you will be able to join us this month, looking forward to see all your creations!!
Have a great day, Anja
