This Weeks Challenge over at the Sweet Stampin’ is Moon & Stars and ours sponsor for this week is Bugaboo witch the prize of 7 digis and our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher.
So after looking through my stamps for something to match Moon and Stars i found this stamp from The Crafter’s Meow set Happy Owlentine’s day. Sense I wanted a night-scene i also looked through my papers and found these from My Mind’s eye, the Stella and Rose collection. The vertical paper is a dark blue but it do get a more gray tone combined with the gray paper.
I based my coloring after this gray paper and all colors are chosen from a gray perspective. The moons texture is made withe the blender pen and I made the clouds with my cloud stencil and the London Fog memento Ink. I did have some Paris Dusk on the stencil that transfered onto the paper. It gave a bit of a depth but the Paris Dusk mostly shows on the top part.
The sentiment is from the same stamp-set and it’s stamped with Archival’s Brilliance Graphite Black. The little banner have been shaped with a pen so the “need” part is raised and the edge of the banner is raised.
I used this weeks Sketch Saturdays Sketch for the layout. I also tried a new cardsize for this card. I think that my normal size (10x15cm) is a bit to narrow and I don’t really like the proportions so I asked Kim Teasdale what size she uses (I just love all her cards!) and I learned that she uses approximately 11x14cm (she of course have her measurements in inches). I thought that felt a bit short so my card is actually 15×11 and I think it’s better then before but I have to try a 11×14 soon. But thanks Kim!
