To the Moon Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight) + World Space Week (WSW day 7)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this To The Moon Card. :o)

As it's World Space Week (WSW) and I'm celebrating whole week, I went with space themed card today. I'm hosting World Space Week Blog Hop here on my blog. There's still more than an hour left to join the hop and enter the giveaway. Find all details and start the hop here. :o)

To make this card I CASEd (copy and share everything) my own card, the one I made for this year's WSW blog hop (here). I went with same design, color scheme, layout, techniques... I just used different sentiment and changed some steps while making the card. :o)

For my card I used stamps from two Jane's Doodles stamp sets: the Moon and a sentiment from 'To The Moon' stamp set and trees from 'Happy Camper' stamp set.

How I made my card...

I stamped the Moon and trees on a watercolor paper panel and colored everything in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

First I watercolored the background. When I was satisfied with the color, I dried the panel with a heat it tool. Then I heat embossed in white the sentiment on the panel.

I watercolored the Moon and colored trees in black, a bit darker than the sky. When I was satisfied with the color, I dried the panel and after blended edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.

Then I masked the Moon and trees, and splattered the panel with a white tempera color mixed with water. After drying, I glued the panel on a black top folded card base.

As a finishing touch, I drew couple stars and dots on the panel using a white pigment ink pen. :o)
