Hello Big Moon

Hello Big Moon cu 05582
For the Free For All Challenge today (F4A259) we are to have a moon somewhere. So that gave me the idea to use a circle die cut to mask out a moon and brayer the background.  After placing the moon mask, I brayered the background. The color is a bit of an accident…I had two rainbow pads out, one w/ all blues & another w/ all greens and I had been testing the color. I rolled the brayer across the blue one but forgot I hadn’t cleaned off the green inks from the brayer so I got a mostly turquoise color gradient. I like the color, so it’s all good!

After removing the mask, I stamped the wildflower silhouette bg w/ the black ink, then stamped the smaller version w/ white pigment ink and white embossed it.  For a little more interest, I die the panel into two sizes and added a white layer in between. The greeting was die cut out of black & white and stacked a little off for depth. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Beautiful! There’s some so peaceful and calming about blues and greens together, this scene all comes together so beautifully!

  7. Gorgeous card! Did you use the Wildflower Single for the white or the Wildflower Background? Thanks.

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment, Lisa! To answer your question, I used the larger Wildflower Silhouette Background for the black stamped image and the smaller Wildflower Silhouette (same as the one in the Miss You set) for the white embossed image.

  8. Gorgeous creation Julie! Have a Blessed day!

  9. A beautiful idea, I love brayering, so this is another project to try….a gorgeous card with the idea of the layering as well…thanks for the tutorial….luv Ursula
