We're sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps who have a fab range of digis and papers available in their store. Stitchy kindly gave the team free choice of her range so for this challenge I decided to challenge myself a bit having never used a digital silhouette before as I'm a promarker fiend so I opted for "Watching You" and I've used blue as my favourite colour and orange as my least.
First I printed the image out onto card to test and my printer ink was running with all the inks I tried so I changed tack and carefully marked on a sheet of A4 card where the image would print, added a circle mask for the moon and used a brayer with a big and juicy inkpad (Beach Umbrella) to colour the card then removed the mask, heat set and printed the image directly onto it. I've hand drawn a rock and coloured with distress ink then I've then inked around the edges, stamped oak tree branch by stampscapes, gave it a spray with iridescent gold glimmer mist and added some sticky gems to finish.
In a nutshell step by step...
Step 1 - Print out your image onto a piece of paper and lay this over your cardstock, mark the cardstock where your image will print.
Step 2 - Place a post it note mask where you would like the moon to appear.
Step 3 - Use a brayer and ink your cardstock, remove mask, heat set and print your image directly onto it. Draw in extra elements such as a rock (optional)
Step 4 - Ink around the edges with distress inks and a blending tool creating a spotlight. Stamp oak tree branch around edges. Add highlights with a sakura pen (I have on the moon) Spray with glimmer mist and add sticky gems.
*Check the glimmer mist doesnt make your ink run on your scrap copy you printed out first!
