Moonlight sympathy


Today I am sharing my second card for the Craft a Scene design team. You can find the blog here. The challenge this month is moon light, you can join us too and have a chance to win a prize! After I had trouble with the first card, I got into the moon mode...... For this card I inked up my Hero arts stamp and stamped it on my background. The background is done with mostly Tim Holtz distress inks and a few SU inks, I will list them for you. For the moon I took a scrap of paper and cut out a 1 1/4 inch circle and used it as a mask , I inked it up with SU so saffron. Then I covered the moon up and started sponging on my other colours: SU bashful blue, TH tumbled glass, TH broken china, TH faded jeans, TH weathered wook, TH black soot, TH spiced marmelade. The sentiment is from Just Rite, Just because set.

Black and barely banana cardstock, SU label punches, Dots embossing folder, some twine out of my stash and liquid pearls to finish it off.

Check out the blogs of the design team members! Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Moonlight kun je ook gebruiken voor iets ROMANTISCH, hoor!!! Volgende keer iets vrolijks???...

I think we took a class together once that included the details for creating a scene like this - and I don't remember most of it!
Your scene looks very realistic - and totally perfect for a sympathy card.

Love this sort of silhouetted image, this one is beautiful.I agree with you, this sort of image is perfect for sympathy cards- always hard to find the right style for. Shaz xxx

hallo,

dank je wel voor je reactie en ik was verrast, in het nederlands. dus ik schrijf dit berichtje ook maar in het nederlands.
ik ben heel even nieuwsgierig.....ben je een nederlandse en woonachtig in Canada?
ik heb even op je blog gekeken en je maakt mooie kaarten, vooral die met craft a scene kaarten vallen bij mij erg op. die zijn schitterend gedaan.
groetjes Dora
