I am doing a Particraft party tomorrow at a local craft club. I have been asked to demonstrate some simple stamping techniques and the members would all like to go home with a completed card. This is the project I am going to do. The stamps are from our Nature stamp plate and can be used for any occasion, male or female. I am going to demonstrate a purple version and I've also done one very similar in sepia.
I made a cirle mask and fixed it to the card before I distressed it with Broken China and Worn Lipstick Distress inks. Then on removing the mask you are left with the moon. I've glittered the edge to add a bit of sparkle. The tree is then stamped with Archival black making sure some of the branches reach into the moon. I've then inked the tree again, this time with Perfect medium and stamped over the tree slightly off to one side ( if you know what I mean)!!! It has then been heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer clear embossing powder. A bit of Aurora glitter added for that little bit of moonlight sparkle!
The tag has been stamped with the leaf using Archival black, then watercoloured with the same distress inks used above. The edges then distressed to match the tree.
The sentiment has been stamped and distressed the same then all layered and mounted on the card. Please visit Particraft
to see the products I've used along with lots more wonderful products which are being constantly updated. There are loads of really lovely new stamp plates all of which are great value for money.

Hope you like the card and I'll let you know how the party goes.

Love Lynne. XXX

I've been meaning to pop over and leave a comment for you about this card. It really is beautiful, Lynne! I love the way you've blended the colours, and really caught the feeling of a very early morning scene. Lovely, lovely, lovely!!
