Friends

I made this card last weekend... the idea was from Rachael and I managed to almost master a sponge! Rachael gives a great tutorial on 'Faking it' and doing faux brayering. The only problem was, I forgot after I started the card that the challenge was to not use a brayer and I did for the base colour. I did manage however to work out the sponge for the other layers of ink... I am so happy with this card! I masked off the grass and sponged the sky leaving a 1 3/8" circle post it for the moon. Then I masked the sky around the moon and sponged that, then masked the sky and sponged the grass. I used a bit of wire and some white paint to do the stars and I was all done! I think I might try this again soon! Thanks Rach.
