Moonlight - Craft A Scene And Forgotten Friday

I am going to enter this card into the Craft A Scene challenge, which I stumbled across while visiting another blog just after they had launched in January. This months challenge is Moonlight and I must admit that I have cheated a little, as my moonlight background is from the new Flower Soft CD, Wishing On A Star. The stamps that I have used are Lavinia Stamps which I bought last Summer at a show. This is the first time that they have seen an ink pad, so will qualify for Judith's Forgotten Friday Challenge. First I printed the moonlight image onto glossy photo paper, and then added the stamps. As well as the fairies, I also used a stampscapes branch, and grasses. I had several attempts at this as I found that using the stazon on the glossy paper was taking the image off as I removed the stamps. Eventually I managed to get it stamped by placing the stamps down and quickly removing them. I added some glitter to the wings of the fairies and the moon. After mounting the topper onto some pearlised light blue card and some black card, I then decorated another light blue piece of card using the stamps that match the CD, stamping the ivy stamp around the edge. I darkened the edges of this using broken glass and faded jeans distress ink pads, this was all then placed onto a black A5 card blank.




Thank you for taking the time to look.

  6. I love this card,the flower soft background is perfect, and the Lavinia fairies stand out beautifully.I just may have to buy that CD, having seen this. I often get the same problem with Staz-on, I have to admit. Its as though it 'sticks' to the paper. I have switched mainly now to either Archival, Versafine or Memento. You can also get a really good black print with Adirondack Pitch Black I've found.
