Good Friday morning. My project today was made last week for Karen Dunbrook’s One Layer Wednesday challenge. One layer cards are a little tricky and definitely requires a really special focal point that can stand on it’s own. I am far more comfortable creating dimension with my die cut flowers and scenes but a big white moon and a shadowy tree line definitely can stand on their own with any embellishment. Here’s what I came up with.
I started by punching out a circle out of a Post-it and stuck it in the sky area to create a mask for the moon. I hand cut a strip of paper to create a mask for the ground area and sponged ink on in the sky area. You can see step by step photos of this process in my Winter Moonlight Snow Scene tutorial.
I stamped the tree image across the card front and lightly sponged ink in the snowy area using the pointed Sofft knife and cover to create the shadows for the trees. I finished by stamping the sentiment.
You can click on the photos to see a closer view.
I have created this kind of snowy moonlight scene several times with different tree images and I always love the outcome. Can’t you just feel the peace and calm of the frosty cold night!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful and restful weekend.
