Moonlighting Technique

Isn't this a cool card?! I seen it on this blog earlier this month then again on Heather Scott's blog today. I inked the tree from Good Timber first on my Versamark pad then on my Noir PH pad then stamped on a square of yellow cardstock. I then sprinkled clear embossing powder over it, tapped off the excess, and heated until done (almost sounds like I'm baking something!). I then punched my Mega Circle punch on the edge of a post-it note (so the sticky area was in the circle) and layed this over the tree. Then I sponged Starry Night PH ink then Noir PH ink as shown. I then punched the corners of a square of black cardstock and attached the yellow cardstock. You can't see them but the right and left sides of the black are pierced. Then I took a 5 1/2" x 11" piece of orange cs, folded in half, and adhered the image. I stamped the text from the BooKoo Blessings with Noir ink in the corner as shown. I'd love to see what you come up with!
One thing you need to remember is that the colors on websites are not usually true to real life. I noticed on my online catalog that the cardstock colors are off a bit so they do look different than my sample. Now that I have this posted I think I'm going to the living room and watch a movie! Tomorrow I will be picking the winner of the dozen Christmas cards and contacting the winner by email. Stay tuned! And I hope you all have a great Labor Day weekend!!

i love how yours turned out Carol! It is a fun technique and pretty easy once you get the gist of sponging!
