I must thank Nancy Morgan and Nancy Littrell (click her name to see her card) for this card, as they both had outside influences on it! Last week I went to a SU! workshop and I met Nancy Morgan. She had some great projects and one of the cards was a card designed by Nancy Littrell. I LOVE going to SU! workshops because I learn so much or I am reminded of a long-forgotten technique. I LOVE to try other people's styles and techniques so I usually try to make exactly what the demonstrator is showing because it is usually something I wouldn't be able to come up with on my own and I always end up loving it!
Okay, so back to the card! I started out with a piece of white cardstock for the card front and a piece of scratch paper that was wider than the white cardstock, on one end I tore it, and on the other end, I punched a circle in it. I took this punched circle (the positive) and used repositionable adhesive and stuck it on the card front where I wanted the moon to be. Then I placed the torn-edge of the scratch paper about 1/3 down the white card front and began sponging. I used blues and purples. When I was happy with the sponged sky, I took off the circle (the positive piece) , then I took the scratch paper that I had punched the circle in (so this would be the negative piece) and I stuck that over the white spot that was left underneath the positive circle punch, and then I sponged with yellows and oranges. Could I make it any more confusing? After all of the sponging, I stamped the Inkadinkado Halloween Trails witch in Black and added a bit of glitter with a Sakura glitter pen. I used oval nesties to cut out the label and sponged the edges just a bit too. I layered a piece of black ribbon and the A Muse sheer yellow ribbon and added the sentiment (The Angel Company). I finished it off with a few Martha Bats! Really, a simple card - but I love the look!
Do check out the other girls and see what they came up with!
