Harvest Moon - A Sponging/Masking Tutorial

Hi All!

I promised a couple of weeks back to get a quick tutorial up on how to re-create this Harvest Moon sunset, and here it finally is!  It's really simple; I hope you'll follow along :)  If you'd like to see the original post along with a list of all the supplies you'll need to create this project click HERE.

First begin by punching out a 1-1/4" circle from a post it note and position it onto a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 3-3/4" x 5".

Sponge Crushed Curry ink over the entire piece of card stock with a sponge.

Sponge Pumpkin Pie along the top and sides of the card stock, leaving the Crushed Curry exposed under the bottom of the moon all the way down to the bottom of the card stock.

Sponge Blackberry Bliss around the outer edges of the card stock.  Intensify the color along the edge furthest away from the light source (moon).  Leave a small amount of the Pumpkin Pie showing through and be careful to not add any of this color to the bottom portion of the card stock beneath the moon.

Remove the mask and add Pumpkin Pie ink to the moon, focusing the most intense color on the bottom.  Using a "dry" sponge (not re-inked before sponging) will help blend the color out easier.

With a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Tuxedo Black Momento ink stamp the tree line from the Wonderland set across the card stock varying the heights for interest.  On a few of the images, stamp off the image once onto scrap paper before stamping; this creates depth to the images.

The finished piece ready to be mounted onto a card base.  See how easy that was?!!  I'd love to see your finished creations, so please email me!  They put a smile on my face each time I see them :)

Have you signed up for my Holiday Newsletter yet?  A pop up subscription box should have greeted you upon arrival; if not, please email me and I'll add you to the list.  For those of you that have already signed up - are you enjoying the projects?  This week marks Week #3 and I have a great little tag for a gift tag to share!

Until next time...
