Moonlight Lovers

Hello Everyone! Today I am guesting over at the Freshly Made Sketches blog, as Newton’s Nook Designs is sponsoring this week’s challenge with a $20 gift certificate to the shop for one lucky winner (along with MANY other prizes from the other sponsors)! How cool is that? I hope you’ll be joining in on the fun!

This week’s sketch allows for a lot of creative freedom; when seeing the sketch, I immediately thought of a scene, and to create a sky with some grassy hills beneath.

With this in mind, I decided to use the adorable Newton Dreams of Paris set and have the two kittens become some sweet lovers sitting under a night sky, bathed in the light of sparkling stars and the glittering Eiffel Tower.

I stamped all my images onto white cardstock and colored everything with Copics. Once everything was fussy cut out, I added white dot details, Wink of Stella glitter and Glossy Accents to different portions of each image.

My night sky is die cut from the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles dies, and inked using Tim Holtz distress inks; Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire, and Dusty Concord. With some white and gold embossing powder, I heat embossed some stars that I stamped from the Neat and Tangled Winter Trees set.

For the grassy hills, I used the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies, and the My Favorite Things Grassy Fields die set. I shaded the die cuts with my Copics, and layered them onto my scene with craft foam.

Finally, to finish my card, I heat embossed the sentiment “bonjour” onto vellum and fussy cut it out to adhere beneath my little kittens.

I love how it turned out! I would also love to hear what you think about my sweet Parisian lovers… leave me a comment letting me know what you like best, and be sure to join in on the challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches. Thanks for stopping by! :)
