Night Magic


I have been dying to use this stamp, breathless magic,  since I bought it last year, but it needed that certain touch that would make it quite special.  While putting supplies away from a recent class, I started to look through my Citra Solv paper stash and lo and behold I saw some papers that had the potential to work well with the composition of the stamp.  Below are the two I auditioned for the part.  For those of you new to Citra Solv manupulation, you can visit the Citra Solv site or look at my past tutorial here to see how these pages were done.  

 

 Here is my beauty shot of the supplies. 


I spent some time searching for the best part of the paper and saw this area that appeared to me to have a small moon near the top.  I chose black StazOn to stamp the image.  Once stamped, I trimmed the image down.






Once trimmed, I added a small dollop of bronze Golden Fluid Acrylic to my junk palette, and spot added color to the stars in the sky and beneath the sea.


To prepare for mounting, I cut black glossy and teal cardstock slightly larger to create a frame.


 I attached all of the layers with Scor Tape.

 ........ and then added the matted work to a folded sheet of black glossy cardstock.


This is a simple card idea for a special someone.  RubberMoon has many stamps that have artistically presented quotes.  Head on over and find your favorites!   Follow me at my website where you will find links to follow me on facebook.  See you soon.
