Moonlighting..


Here is my latest creation. The technique I used is called Moonlighting. You basically punch a circle out of a Post IT Note - stick it to the card stock to mask the area and then sponge your color around it, making a moon. I wrote about this technique on my Monthly Tip/Technique section of the My Story page - click here to view.

On this card I used the Inspired by Nature stamp set with Basic Black, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Ridinghood Red Ink. One tip I would give is to visually decide where your moonlight will go in comparison to your stamped image, but wait to stamp your image until you have sponged. I found that even though I let my black stamped image sit for approx 10 min before I started sponging that it still smudged into the sponged ink. I would have liked to have made the color more vivid, but when this started happening I decided to let the color stay. This is a really cool technique and I will definitely use it again.
