Thinking of You- Sunset at Moon Lake
It has been another busy week with doctor’s visits (my hubby had his sixth chemo treatment and he seems to be responding as the doctors hoped- Praise the Lord!) and, of course, we had some more snow (I had fun shoveling :-)), so I did not get to play in my craft room until late last evening :-)
This card was created using the SR267 Color Challenge along with the FabFri58 Sketch and the Splitcoaststampers MMTPT342 Challenge (see details for the challenge here and the gallery here).
If you have not already visited the above sites, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the image from Moon Lake using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the image using Stampin’ Write Markers- Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke, Baked Brown Sugar, Smoky Slate and Basic Black.
Using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker, add additional grass, horizon line on the water and shadows on the rocks.
Using the 1” Circle Punch, punch out a circle from sticky note paper or scrap paper for the moon.
Place the paper with the opening over the stamped scene and use a Sponge Dauber to lightly apply Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral Classic Ink onto the moon area.
Remove the moon mask and apply the circle mask over the sponged moon.
Using Sponge Daubers, apply Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral Classic Ink over the sky area and water (being careful around the tree image so you do not smear the marker areas) and apply a bit of Always Artichoke Classic Ink to fill in the grassy area as well.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image along with another frame from Always Artichoke cardstock. Add a few birds to the scene using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker.
Cut the Always Artichoke frame in half, adhere behind the focal image and distress with the Distressing Tool.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Pear Pizzazz Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Always Artichoke cardstock.
Distress the edges of the Always Artichoke using the Distressing Tool and lightly sand the DSP with the Sanding Block.
Using Gorgeous Grunge along with Calypso Coral Classic Ink, add the splatter and diagonal line details to a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock.
Using Always Artichoke Classic Ink, add additional details with Gorgeous Grunge, trim the panel and distress with the Distressing Tool.
Adhere the Calypso Coral panel onto the Always Artichoke card base and mount the embossed Pear Pizzazz panel onto the card front.
Add the strips of frayed Burlap Ribbon and mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals ®.
Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, punch out with the Word Window Punch and the banner end with the Hexagon Punch.
Mount the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the Antique Brad to finish off the card.
