By The Silvery Moon

Hi Everyone - and Welcome to Day 5 of the Scrappy-Go-Lucky Blog Hop. Remember, the colour scheme is black, white and silver - but what is the theme ???

This is the card I made using the "Summer Vacation" cartridge.

To achieve this background of a beautiful, shimmery moon, I started with a piece of Glossy white cardstock.

Using some sponges, I covered the whole sheet with a very pale gray ink.

I then attached a 1 1/4" circle with some repositional adhesvie, and sponged it again with the pale gray.

Moving out a little from the circle, I sponged with a darker gray.

Then moving out further again, used the darker gray for a second time.

Lastly, I sponged the edges with black ....

Finally removing the circle.

To finish up the background, I then used the edge of the sponge to add a few shimmery silver clouds (they don't show up very good in the photo). This technique also works well with different colours - yellows into oranges, and blues into purples.

The silhouette of the girl is from "A Childs Year", cut at 1 1/4". The tent is from "Summer Vacation" and is cut at 1 1/2", then highlighted with a silver gel pen. I have adhered the cut-outs from the tent flat to the card, but the main tent image is mounted on foam dots to add shadowing and dimension.

The tropical palm trees are also from "Summer Vacation", cut at 2 1/2" and 3", and again highlighted with a silver gel pen. The smaller tree is adhered flat to the card, and the larger one with foam dots.

There are numerous grass images from Gypsy Wanderings ranging in size from .3" to .45". Using the Gypsy, these have been welded together from largest to smallest, and adhered in layers of two and three.

Haved you guessed the theme yet - For all the details on how to win one of the four new cartridges:-

Rock Princess
Winter Frolic

Happy Hauntings
