Some Bunny Loves You – Night Sky Using Distress Inks


Night Sky in Water ColorsToday’s card is featuring a technique that I saw in a few videos and images over the last couple of months, but I have never tried it before: Creating a night sky using Distress Inks.

I started with die cutting a white piece of card stock and stamping the moon from the Altenew “To The Moon” set in the upper half using Lawn Fawn’s new butter ink. Now I stamped the moon again onto masking paper, cut out the mask and covered the moon on the card stock entirely. For the night sky I started with blending Blueprint Sketch all over the card stock, followed by Hickory Smoke on the edges. Now I blended Seedless Preserves all over the card stock, except for the area around the moon. To blend it even better I went back and forth with the three colors till I was happy with the result. Now I removed the mask and added another layer of the moon with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. To get the uneven look, I carefully sprinkled some water on top and removed it with a paper towel.

Close UpI took the bunnies from Mama Elephant’s “Honey Bunny” set, stamped them on water color paper and colored them with Zig Clean Color (and something more in the name) markers. While these were drying I die cut a piece of grass from some Lawn Fawn paper, a banner for the sentiment and stamped the sentiment including two hearts on it. Now I adhered everything together and added some white dots to the night sky.

Close Up 2I hope you enjoyed my card. I really liked how the night sky turned out. Next time I will use water color paper for the background though. I bet you would see the water sprinkles much better.
