Sometimes I don’t like creating a card with a sentiment on the card front. The sentiment seems to distract or take away from the image itself. Here is an example of that instance.
I just want the receiver of the card to look at the moon shining from behind the clouds in a deep, dark, peaceful night forest. I love the ink blended night sky I created, and the bright moon contrasted against the sky and black forest.
Hope you like this project. Time to contemplate and meditate that there are still some beautiful things in this world. Have a great day.
Supplies used to make this project:
- Stamps: Altenew: To the Moon stamp set.
- Altenew: To the Moon die set.
- Hero Arts: Forest Sunset Fancy Die.
- Distress Oxide Inks (for the night sky): Blueprint Sketch, Seedless Preserve, Wilted Violet.
- Altenew: Silver Lake ink (for the moon).
- Versamark embossing ink (for embossing over the stamped moon).
- Pale gray card stock from my stash (moon).
- Black cardstock from my stash (forest and clouds).
- Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper (ink-blending of night sky).
- Other: Brutus Monroe: Fairy Dust embossing powder (for stamping over the moon).
Notes: The card size is a standard A2 (4.25” by 5.5”). The moon was stamped on pale gray cardstock with Silver Lake ink. A stamp positioner was used for this. Another layer of Versamark ink was then stamped over the image (using the same moon stamp). The embossing powder was applied over this and then heated with a heat tool. This process gave the moon a shimmery look which the photo does not pick up.
