Stars at Night




Good Morning. Hope everyone is well and happy. Last night when I came in from work I came in here and just got inky! Tried another Michelle Zindrof example. I'm gonna learn this or die trying LOL. I added several more stamps or parts of stamps to this one. The trees in the back ground are from Stamping Up's Lovely as a Tree. I just barley inked the tops to make it look as if it was far off. I did the thingy with the black ink pad again. In the lower right hand corner I stamped H184 image from Great Impressions. The ones to the right are from a Stamping Up set and yes done and forgot which one I pulled it out from. Sorry. Then used Bliss Blue and started sponging around. After I got it to where I was half way satisfied started sponging Brillant Blue. Finished it off sponging with Night of Navy. I added dots in the sky for stars with a clear glitter pen and white outlines on the flower image with a white Opaque pen. I also used that and tried to put ripples in the water. I should of quite while I was ahead. I think that was a big mistake! But anyway, I do think this one is better than the first one I tried. So I guess it's back to the drawing board and try again later. Thanks for taking time to drop in for a look see. Hope you enjoyed it. Y'all have a great day!

Your card turned out beautifully! Your sponging is gorgeous and highlights are perfect, I have trouble with them! Like you I can't do the water like Michelle does so now I cheat. I bought a water stamp (looks like ripples of water) and use white craft ink! LOL If you ever get the water where you like it please tell me how you do it, my water just looks so sad!
