Hi stamping friends. Today I am sharing one of the cards I submitted for the Designer's Showcase, for round 2 of selections. This card is one that helped me get on the team.
To make this fun and creepy night sky I started with a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock. I die cut at large circle from copy paper and stuck that to my cardstock. This mask will allow a nice circle for my moons to stay white. Then I used my Dauber Dowel to sponge on color around my mask.
I started with Electric Lime. Always start out with a light hand when you want to create a smooth background like this with a Dauber Dowel sponge. Otherwise you will get nice little circles. I brushed on the Electric Lime with a light hand working my way out around the moon. The second color I used was Limeade Splash, overlapping the lime slightly and working my way out towards the edge of the card. The last green I used was Kiwi Slice, again slightly overlapping the last color, blending them together. I told the ink all the way to the edge of the card. The last color I sponged on is Rock Candy, lightly around the edges. Finally, with the mask still on I added a splatter of Sparkle Silk.
I did some more sponging to color my dancing lady. I first embossed the image with clear pigment ink and clear embossing powder on Whip Cream cardstock. Then I sponged on some Rock Candy ink.
I added some details to finish off my card, like the die cut grass and some stamped images form the set.
