Craft A Scene - March - Moonlight

Good Morning Chicks!

My mojo is slowly coming back and I finally had the mindset to work on another Stampscapes scene for the Craft A Scene Blog Challenge for March which is moonlight.

This scene was very easy to accomplish.  I started with four Stampscape stamps (listed below) and then decided to do a monochromatic scene.  It turned out pretty kewl ... I think!  Also, I used a 5X7 size for the card.

To colour the scene I started with a Tim Holtz blending tool with the foam.  Using Memento London Fog I started colouring lightly from the edge moving inward.  It probably took abour five passes around the whole card to get the look I wanted.  Then, using Distress Ink called Black Soot I used the blending tool and once again worked the ink lightly from the outside edge inward until it was dark enough.

I decided that the scene needed a tiny bit of something to add interest so picked up my Colorbox Stylus that had Adirondack Lemonade on the foam pad and without reinking it I tapped a bit of colour into the moon.  Here is a closer look at the photo so you can see what I've done!

Once I mounted the scene it was easy to see that it would look great mounted black on white.  A little bit of scoring around the outside edge and it was done!  After I finished the card I was thinking that a funny sentiment for the inside, that would go with the outside would be... Congratulations on your children moving out!  haha!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you for your visit and your lovely comments. This was one of those things where the plan went wrong and the card took over and did itself - totally different from the plan. I don't possess any Stampscape stamps at the moment (most of mine are Clarity Stamps) but I suspect I might add a few to my collection sometime soon, especially when I see such great results as yours. I really need to practice more though to get things to work as I want. I could also do with a few more Adirondacks and Distress ink pads too. Have a great week. xx Maggie

Sheree, you always impress me with your stampscape cards. You gifted me a set and they are so gorgeous, but I am way intimidated! Your cards inspire me to try it, but I'm so afraid I won't get it right. Do you use glossy paper?

What is there to say, except perfect.
I can just imagine sitting at the edge of that water and watching the moon.
Talented lady!!!!

I absolutely love this card. The depth of the color black is fantastic. I was trying to achieve that look with the Momento Black which is all I had at the time. I just got an order of some stuff I won and I now have an Adirondack Pitch Black so I am going to try it again. NancyD

This is gorgeous & I love the sentiment you chose for the inside. I can see whoever gets this laughing their heads off when they open it & read the inside.
