Starry Night

Hello, today I'm sharing a card created with Poppystamps dies and a Memory Box stencil suitable for any occasion. My inspiration was a clear night in the Pacific Northwest. Year-round we have beautiful evergreen trees, and the Pine Tree Border fits perfectly with the Brevilla House die. We're more apt to have clear nights during the summer, and they are truly glorious!

To begin, I colored three watercolor panels with Distress Inks. I die cut the panel colored in earthtones with the Brevilla Houses die, and I die cut the green-colored panel with the Pine Tree Border. I intentionally left some of the windows in place in the houses for some variety. Finally, I applied embossing paste through the Starry Nights stencil onto the panel colored in dark blues.  Before applying the embossing paste, I covered up the largest stars in the stencil with washi tape. Even though the stars aren't realistically in scale with the houses, the largest stars would have thrown off the balance considerably.

Sadly the last post I received by email was 4/26/14 even though I subscribe. I tried re subscribing and it tells me I already am but Im all of a sudden not getting the posts emailed to me as before. I also am having this problem with Memory Box posts and have alerted Dave. Didnt know who to contact here so am posting it here, sorry. Please pass this on to the right person and thank you. Got here manually and just want to say your Starry Night card is lovely. Nice way to use the stencil and little houses.

Adorable card, Jean!

Hi Eileen, I've passed the issue on to Dave. There has been a recent change with the email addresses to which Feedburner delivers affecting a large number of bloggers (Feedburner delivers to gmail accounts, but not to aol, yahoo, hotmail, etc.). Hopefully there will be some solutions in place soon. Thanks for letting us know.

Thanks for the response. Its greatly appreciated.

Wow, love this card! The background is wonderful, love the watercolored look and the embossing paste. Also love the scene you created. Awesome job! Thank you for sharing.
