Hello, friends! You are all stars in my heart. Jen here, sharing another card for the March release. I love this classic Wish digistamp. I have the retired clear stamp, but the digital version made this technique a lot easier than having to get out my stamp positioner. You all know that everything I learned about cardmaking I learned at Splitcoast, right? A recent Technique Lovers Challenge on Splitcoast challenged us to do this kind of layering/half spotlighting technique and it looked so fun that I just had to try it. I've actually combined three different challenges on this one card. I tried out another of the Technique Lovers Challenges which was Pencil Indenting. I thought that was a neat way of adding craters to the moon.
I was difficult to photograph those craters, so you might have to just take my word for it. I actually printed three copies of this image and used one as a mask to brayer on a base layer of blue ink before painting over that with some pearlescent ink and then adding some stars with paper glaze and glitter paste. This card really shines, which is just what I wanted to accentuate this fabulous and heartfelt sentiment.
I mentioned that I have the retired clear stamp version of this stamp set, and I used that one just prior to finding out that it was in this March release. Did you know that we are in the Year of the Rabbit on the Chinese calendar? I made this card for a friend who celebrates the Chinese New Year:
Don't be afraid to experiment with different colors and styles for that night sky! Click here if you want to know the punchline.
Here is the digistamp set that I've used today:
