So when I found this stamp recently, I knew it would be well-loved at my house. And when I saw this week's challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch (check them out HERE), I decided it was the perfect time to pull out this stamp and start creating. I have a feeling you'll be seeing more cards with this stamp in the future. It's just such a great sentiment!
Here's the sketch I was working with:
And here is my card:
It's really hard to see in this picture (darned overcast day!), but the sentiment panel and the moon are shaded with peach, yellow and blue tones to give them some dimension and keep them from being stark white. I used die cuts in my Big Shot for most of this card. The moon is a circle die cut, the sentiment is a Nestabilities die cut, and the stars are die-cut from shimmery silver paper. I stamped my sentiment, then sponged dye ink and chalks on my sentiment panel and the moon. I adhered everything to a dark blue card base (it's lightly textured, which also doesn't show up well in the picture). This will be an easy card to recreate, so I plan to make a few more to donate to Operation Write Home. I am sure there are some deployed mommies and daddies who would love to send cards home to their kids!
I am working on another challenge card today and will be posting that one tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by today!
