Friends in the Moonlight

Morning my crafting friends, hope everyone is okay today, lots of hugs going to those who are not. I thank you all for coming by and visiting me its good to have you along.

Thank you do much for all your wonderful comments on my MDF Love Heart (last post) we now have a date to scatter Joys ashes, 21st April, cannot believe we have to wait so long but never mind.

Now I have recently bought three new stencils from Sweet Poppy, I bought some a couple of years ago and love them because they are sturdy being metal as well as easy to clean, nothing wrong with any other kind they all do a great job and yes it means they are a bit more expensive and these were on offer, as soon as I saw this one I had to have it being a cat lover and all that lol!

I knew I wanted to keep the cats as a silhouette so I attached my stencil to the Hammer card and inked through with my Versamark ink pad then heat embossed with two Black embossing powders, one sparkly the other Matt.

I inked round the image with Black soot but leaving the moon White, then went over the edges with Black Soot again and I have just noticed that I have left it looking like the tree is floating, silly me!!! I should have trimmed it back to the end of the tree branch!

To keep the monochrome look I matted this onto some White corrugated card then onto my Black base card.

Very simple to do, I am sure it would look just  as good with using Black Soot or some other ink through the stencil rather than embossing.

I shall do it again but with the moon as the this space!

Items Used:

Soho Creations Hammered brilliant card
Sweet Poppy Stencil Friends
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Black Soot
Crelando Corrugated Card White (Lidls)
