Sponged Night Sky ...

Hello lovelies.

I had some of the girls in my team over yesterday to show some of the lovely swaps I received at the Incentive Trip and also to do some stamp technique training. We went through 6 techniques and the girls all got to make a sample. We also had a lovely lunch together.

Here's one of the samples I demonstrated, which I made up into a card last night. I have used sponging and post it note masks to make a night sky. Very different for me, but I really like how this turned out.

Brayered Sky 

Here's the recipe for you:

  • Stampin' Up! Stamps: Winter Post, Le Jardin Botanique, Snow Swirled and Many Merry Messages
  • Ink: Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy, Versamark, Stazon
  • Cardstock: Whispering White, Basic Black
  • Accessories: White and silver embossing powder, silver brads.

Lovely cold and rainy day in Melbourne today (I'm a little strange, I actually like cold weather) so I am pottering around at home. My favourite kind of weekend. I hope you are having a great weekend doing whatever you want as well!

Awesome card Claire! The blue is really striking with the black and white. I'm so loving that we are heading towards Christmas ...

Wow, love it. You will have to show me how on Thursday.

That looks amazing, great silhouette and sky! Glad you had a fabulous time away,

As always Claire, this card is sensational!

Majestic was the first word that came to mind when I saw this card
Claire. Perhaps the posture of the stag!! The sponging is awesome and I love the embossing. Awesome card.

What a beautiful card Claire! I love it. Very classic! But I think all your work is. Looks like the IT was an absolute blast. Crossing my fingers for next year....I would love to go!

Hi Claire :) I just had to leave a comment about your beautiful card! Love the colours and all round feel of the card - it is quite a unisex one too :)

Love this card Claire, very inspiring - I might just give it a go! TFS

Beautiful card,I have just now found this card information. I only have the NOT quite Navy ink.

The Bordering Blue is discontinued. What ink would you now suggest for this night sky affect?
