Twinkle All the Way...

After creating this card for last weeks Less Is More, I thought I'd have a go at making a one layer card version. I die cut two stencils from clear acetate sheeting, one with the negative space from Lil Inkers Stitched Square and the other with Making Memories Country Landscape, then taped them together to use as my mask for inking. Inked up with Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord, moving upwards to the deepest colour. Stamped with Mama Elephant Believe in Magic star cluster and Winter Wonderland large star in Momento Luxe Wedding ink embossed in white embossing powder then added Mama Elephant Merry Greetings sentiment in black, and Wink of Stella Clear Sparkle to the night sky. It felt like it needed a little extra boost, so I created a hand drawn outline in black fine-liner for added depth.

Playing along with Less Is More One Layer Starry Starry Night, Mama Elephant and Me Holiday Cards and Tags, Color ThrowdownThe Pink Elephant CAS and City Crafter Christmas CAS.

  22. This is super Lyndal, using a similar technique as I did too!
    It's a terrific scene!
    I think you may have slightly gone over the number of combined challenges we allow at LIM... it's 5 max.
    Thanks so much
