Moon on the horizon

The Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoast this week is A Day in the Snow.  It may be stretching it a little but here is my scene at the end of a day in the snow or perhaps the beginning, before all the fresh snow has been played in!

I used post-it notes to mask my moon and horizon first then sponged my sky in Amethyst and Navy.  After removing the moon mask I added a little bit of grey sponging across the moon.  I stamped the large tree after removing the horizon mask and then sponged the snowy hills in grey one at a time by moving the mask down and over a little each time.

When I was in the CAS101 gallery looking at the cards already posted I noticed an “enough already” card!  I can understand the thought but here in Ottawa our snow disappeared and we had to start again so I am looking forward to more this weekend!


Stamps: Branch Out, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Night of Navy, Going Gray, Basic black, Almost Amethyst
Cardstock: Flourishes classic white

    This is so calm, peaceful, and beautiful. The touch of gray across the moon really accents it. This is a beautiful snowy evening, and I want to pop this panel off your card and frame it! Gorgeous, Heather.

    I agree ~ I’d love to pop this off your card and frame it!

    Still hoping that you’ll give a detailed tutorial for something like this ’cause I’m not at all sure how to do each step but I just LOVE all your masking and sponging!

    Love the card, great job. TFS We are getting the snow right now ( we are outside of St. Catharines ) and I hear it is heading your way. Have a good one. Hugs n’ Stuff, Lynne

    Sixty two thousand tutorials wouldn’t help me a bit! That’s about how many skies I’ve sponged since your first Northern lights card I loved so much. Each sky I did got a bit better, but this morning I dabbed a bit of Aspen Mist (VersaColor I think) around the head of a sea gull and totally wrecked that card because the sponge had a tiny drop of concentrated ink I hadn’t noticed before it hit the cardstock. In trying to smooth the ink, I brushed a tiny drop of water across it and instantly dissolved the first layer of the paper. I’m JINXED!!!!!!

    Your card is magnificent, again.
