Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing well on this (rather cold and windy but sunny) Wednesday.  I have a card to share today where I'd like to say I was channeling my inner Heather Telford.  It's not quite a work of art like her cards are but I'm quite pleased with it.  :-).  Take a look...

So, first I masked off a rectangular area on my cardstock.  I like to use some old washi tape as it's not too sticky and peels off easy.  I have one that has a pattern I don't care for so it's what I use.  :-).  I cut a circle from a post it note (they work well for masking as they are low tack and are quite thin) and positioned it on the top left corner of my rectangle.  Then I sponged my inks on.  For this I used StazOn (sunflower yellow, blazing red, royal purple, azure) because I find the colour are really vibrant and solid when sponging.  They do have a tendency to eat away at the sponge so use ones you don't mind throwing away after.  I use makeup sponges cause they are really inexpensive.  Once my sponging was done, I took off my circle mask and added some dark grey with my Spectrum Noir marker then blended it with the blender pen making my moon.  Then I inked up my stamp (Winter Ledge by Penny Black) with black ink.  I removed my washi tape and trimmed my panel which I matted with black cardstock.  I mounted it on my white card base with foam dots.  Lastly, I stamped my sentiment (from Trendy Feathers set by STAMPlorations).  This Penny Black stamp is really awesome.  This is actually only a portion of it.  They've got lots of great branch stamps.  :-)

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:

Penny Black and More - anything goes
STAMPlorations - stamps and layers.  I've got some layers of ink as well as paper layers.

Well, that's it for now.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!


  1. Beautiful card, Kim! I say you channeled your inner Heather Telford rather well. I like how vibrant the StazOn inks are. I've been thinking of investing in a few StazOn ink pads but I don't know much about how these inks react -- I'm glad I read your tip about using the cheap cosmetic sponges! And what a coincidence -- I was writing you an email and after I'd sent it, I saw the InLinkz notification email for this! :o)

  2. This came out great! Love those colors and your moon!

  3. Lovely fusion of colours Kim, great stamping and inkwork.
