Colour Creations: Misty Moonlight

 Hi!


Welcome back for the second last Colour Creations Creative Showcase for 2020. We will be back in 2021 with the remaining colours, but we are taking a well deserved break for Christmas/New Year after we do Mossy Meadow next week. For this week, we are all making cards using Misty Moonlight. It's a gorgeous dirty blue, a bit like denim.

I started my card by cutting a Thick Whisper White card base and then two smaller pieces for the front. The curves were cut using the curved die from the Home Together Dies. I laid them over the top of the card and then used a pencil to draw along the top edges to give myself a guide for stamping the trees. The tree stamp is from Waterfront, and was stamped in Memento ink.

I then used a sticky note and a 1 3/4" circle punch to mask off the moon. My blending brush was used to apply Misty Moonlight ink to the top half of the card, making sure I kept the colour very light around the moon and darker further out. I then splattered some Frost White Shimmer Paint over the inked area. The hill pieces were glued flat to the card front, after I'd stamped the top one with the sentiments from Peace & Joy.

The offcuts from the hills on the front were used on the inside - I rarely waste anything! I related the same process as for the front, I just didn't do a moon. I was thrilled with how the card turned out, and I found it quite easy. The hardest part was waiting for the Shimmer Paint to dry!

That's all from me for tonight, but please do head on over to Catherine's Blog, where you'll find the rest of the links for this week's Misty Moonlight cards.

Bye for now,

Tina

  3. I'm not sure I can come at your description of Misty Moonlight being a "dirty" blue, my friend!! LOL. What a beautiful card you have made. I love that you stamped the trees (a perfect size) in black ink; perfect! The blending of Misty Moonlight ink is so pretty, and the splatters of shimmer paint a beautiful touch.

    1. Ha! I probably should have called it a dusty blue! Regardless, it's a gorgeous colour :)

  4. A stunning card Tina. I love everything about it - the blending of the moon and sky, the stamped trees, the shimmer paint splatters and the white rolling hills - and to top it off the beautiful inside. So gorgeous. xxx

  6. Oh my, NO... I disagree that it's a dirty blue - it's my favourite blue in the SU range!!! I do love your wonderful blending to create a gorgeous scene and the shimmery paint is a great way to finish to off!
