Little Claire's Friday Project

Hello to you all, My share today is a first for me at Little Claire's....
It's the Friday Project
I have decided to show how you can make a background for all the lovely silhouette stamps that are
available from Little Claire

I first started by gathering all I needed

After stamping my image onto my card  with some black Versafine ink I punched a 2 inch circle to use as a mask for the moon,you can place this wherever you like

Using Faded Jeans distress ink and a sponge start inking the card around the image and moon making sure you hold the moon mask firmly, I have left some free of ink where I think the moon is shining.

I have also gone around the top corners with Festive Berries distress ink to give some depth to the image.


 To get the effect of clouds across the moon I have picked some ink up on a cotton bud and simply  wiped it across.

I then put everything together and this is the end result.
 Supplies used
 Stamp-Meadow Girl
Backing Paper DCWV Floral Foliage
Postcard Sentiment Stamp
Versafine Ink
Ranger Distress Ink Faded Jeans and Festive Berries
2 inch circle punch
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Coredinations
