My card today is featuring the Starry Sky background. This creates such a magical edge to you card fronts. It is a red rubber stamp that measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and fits an A2 size card perfectly.
I started my background by first ink blending the edges of a piece of Lapis card stock. I used Cornflower and Navy ink from Hero Arts and applied the ink with my Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studios. I’m working on a Waffle Flower Media Mat which is Silicone and helps hold my card stock in place while I ink blend.
Once my background is dry, I can stamp my background.
If you are using a stamping tool, like the Misti which is what I did, you need to remove the foam insert piece from the Misti. I stamped my background onto my ink blended panel using Embossing Ink. Then heat embossed Gold Embossing Powder. Dreamy right?
I trimmed a smidge off the edges and attached to a card front made from Fog card stock.
For my Lunar Moth from the Moon Magic stamp set, I stamp the image onto Pearlescent Vellum from Lawn Fawn with Embossing Ink. Then applied Silver Embossing Powder and heat set. I used the coordinating die to cut out my image and also cut out 2 more from the Pearlescent Vellum. Vellum can be tricky to attach without showing the adhesive which is why I cut out 2 more. I was able to layer these together by completely covering them with tape runner adhesive making sure my embossed image was on top. Sneaky right?
I finished off the card by adhering a sentiment from the Moon Magic stamp set. I had heat embossed the sentiment in Gold onto Pitch Black cards stock. I also added a couple drop of Nuvo Gold Luxe Dream Drops to the small dots on the wings of the Moth.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Be sure to stop back tomorrow as I will have more to share!
