I first cut a piece of masking paper to A2 size. I used my dies to cut a horizon line & cut a circle from the "sky" portion for the moon. I applied the bottom (land) portion of my mask and the moon mask to a panel of watercolor paper. I inked the sky with Faded Jeans near the moon, working out to Chipped Sapphire & Black Soot. When I had finished inking, I spattered with my Perfect Pearls mist and the White Gold Starry Colors watercolor. I dried that with my heat tool, and removed the land mask. I added the sky mask so I could ink up the foreground. I used Bundled Sage along the horizon, and Peeled Paint further down. I went over the whole thing with Pumice Stone to darken it, but it didn't get as dark as I wanted. So, without reinking my Black Soot blending foam, I lightly went over the Peeled Paint around the edges & bottom of the panel. I left the area right in front of the moon lighter to have a "glow."
I removed the moon mask, and replaced the land mask. I inked the moon area with Yeti on a fingertip sponge dauber. I added spots ("craters") with Faded Jeans on a sponge dauber to the moon, and blended those out with the Yeti dauber. I removed the sky mask, and inked just around the moon with Yeti. Finally, I removed the land mask.
I stamped my flowers with Black Shimmer ink, wiping my stamps in between each impression, just in case some white ink got on the stamp. (I didn't want to contaminate my black ink pad.) After I had a nice full foreground, I stopped.
I heat embossed my greeting on a scrap of vellum, and cut it into a banner shape. I stapled it to my card front with my Tiny Attacher. Finally, I adhered my panel to a white card base. This design was a bit challenging, but I like how it came out--and I did it in just under an hour!
