To the Moon + A Tutorial

by jocelynolson1

Hi everyone! It's Jocelyn here. I have a card and a quick tutorial today.

Moon for You

   

I used the To the Moon stamps–what a pretty set! To make this card, I started with the background. There are several ways to make a nighttime background, but here's how I made this one:

 

 

Night Background Tutorial

  1. Blend the center using a light blue. Don't worry about any uneven spots.
  2. Blend a darker blue from the outside toward the center. Lightly cover the lighter blue in the center.
  3. Use a violet ink and blend around the edges. At this point, you'll want to smooth out any uneven spots.
  4. Before the panel has dried, use a combination of spray mists and water to splatter on the card. Allow the panel to dry, or, if you're impatient like me, dry with a heat gun.
  5. Once the panel dries, splatter white and dark blue mists for add more dimension.

I had so much fun making the panel, I made three! I die-cut one of the panels for a little different design:
Moon for You

 

 

For the moon, I stamped one of the layers from the To the Moon set in silver ink. The sentiment is from the same set. I felt like the card needed a little something else, and I added sequins, a chipboard star, and resin stars. Here's a close-up of the moon:

This is STUNNING!!! That moon looks so realistic! Wow! And I love the blue panels – you could make 109 and I would still think they were fabulous every time! So 3 is perfection! Gorgeous addition with the sequins! ❤️
