I decided to do a simply laid out card. What I wanted to feature was a branch, a cat and the moon. To prepare for that I made myself a mask so that I could begin sponging in a huge yellow and orange moon using Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach inks. Once that was done I changed over to a mask to protect that moon I had just created and began sponging in the sky using Marina Mist and Night of Navy inks. Partway through a rather vigorous bit of sponging created a wrinkle in my sky and it definitely showed. Rather than scrap the piece and begin again, I took advantage of Fate's interference and carefully created a whole set of wrinkles all over the piece, making sure I left the moon smooth. The finished sponging was even better than I had hoped. The added lines from the wrinkles were a super addition.
Next I turned to the silhouettes I had planned to place across the moon. The branch was easy. I love the skinny, bare branch from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Thinlits. After cutting that out from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock, I mulled over cat silhouette choices. The Stampin' Up! Cat Punch simply didn't have enough attitude. I had, however, bought a set of Tim Holtz cat stamps with matching framelits. One of those cats had attitude to spare. I used the framelit to cut out my cat from Basic Black cardstock. The branch and cat were perfect against that huge moon.
I wanted a sentiment but didn't think stamping one, even with heat embossing, would show up well. I did, however, have a retired Stampin' Up! framelit which spelled out "spooky" and used on a scrap of Black Glitter paper.
I hope you'll check out the other great silhouettes at the Male Room.
