Moonlight Sympathy- Two Challenges in One!
I wanted to share one more card with you that I created today using the gorgeous Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSC191 Inspiration Photo and the CCMC315 Sketch at Create with Connie and Mary.
Again, I hope you will find time to visit both sites to check out the Design Team samples as well as the rest of their galleries- it always amazes me that so many ideas can come from one sketch or color/inspiration photo!
To create this card:
Use the 1 3/8” Circle Punch to punch out a circle from a piece of scrap paper and apply the punched circle to the upper right of a piece of Whisper White cardstock (also create a mask for the mountains and water line on the card using scrap paper or sticky notes).
Use a Sponge Dauber with Pool Party to apply ink near the horizon line, add Coastal Cabana, Wisteria Wonder and Blackberry Bliss. Repeat the process a bit lighter for the water area under the horizon.
Remove the masks for the mountain and horizon line, sponge Blackberry Bliss for the mountain and horizon area.
Ink the trees from Lovely As A Tree using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and mask before stamping onto the horizon area. Stamp the same trees again (re-inking with the Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto a scrap piece of acrylic packaging or window sheet and apply with the ink side down in the “water” area for the reflection.
Trim the panel into thin strips per the sketch and mount onto Basic Black cardstock. Trim again into the strips for the sketch challenge.
Mount the strips onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhere to the Basic Black card base.
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the XL Oval Punch. Punch two additional ovals from Basic Black cardstock and layer behind the sentiment.
Add the two strips for the banners per the sketch- one from Basic Black cardstock and the other from Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) – both punched on the ends with the Hexagon Punch to create the banner
Add the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® with a few Pearls to finish off the card.
