Moon and Stars Card (LMMS Inspiration)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this CAS (clean and simple),  one layer, Moon and Stars Card. :o)

My card is a CASE of my own card that I shared three weeks ago: Shoot for the Moon Card II. I went with same design and layout, same color scheme, but I used different sentiments (digital stamps).

For my today's card I used beautiful LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Second Star to the Right Sentiment' digital stamp. I love it!! :o)

I already had a layout template saved on my computer. I changed the image and printed it out directly on a card base, for which I used a white cardstock paper. To prevent ink smearing, I left the image dry couple hours. 

I mixed a Distress Ink Hickory Smoke with a lot of water and used that for shading. When I was satisfied with shades, I masked the Moon and splattered card front with Distress Ink Hickory Smoke mixed with water. I dried splatters using Heat It Tool. Then I watercolored the Moon. I used Distress Inks Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber.

Lastly, I coated the Moon with Clear Wink of Stella and glued two black star stickers on the card, which look same as stars on the image, and my card was finished. :o)

I like this "negative" night sky look and will definitely use this design AGAIN using other stars and Moon images I have. :o)

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")
