Simon’s Monday Challenge is NO RULES. I was inspired by my good friend Angela to create this card. Here is a link to hers. I loved using the distress inks to make a soft sky. I used my very very old Stamping Up cloud stencil which has some stars in the middle of it and the stars looked rather large after I embossed them. Hmmm. what to do? Well a single element wasn’t going to work with those honkin’ big stars. Maybe my StampScapes would look good on here. I grounded them out on a hill of green and love the way it turned out. This will go out to our son-in-law hopefully on time. I am 21 days ahead of the date.
I used clear embossing powders and heat set the stars after using versa mark ink to rub over the stencil. Then sponged two colors of Distress inks over the stars. They resist the color. Then I misted the card with water so there were no harsh lines. I dried it with heat gun. Then stuck a punched circle down and held it in place and went over the circle with the sponge again creating the beautiful moon.
This uses three different stamps from StampScapes. The cabin, the windmill and the geese. It’s always fun to build a scene with their images.
