Hello crafty friends!  Today I'm showing you a card I made trying a couple techniques that I'd never tried before.  And I must say, I like the results!

I started with a piece of white card stock.  First I stamped the image onto the card stock with Black Onyx Versa Fine ink, I then stamped over it, using my Stampamajig, with Versa Mark.  I then embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Next I used Distress Ink on foam pads to color the sky.  First, I used lavender, then two shades of blue.  I then buffed the embossed impression with a cloth to take the extra ink off that area.  I used the Black ink directly to the paper at the bottom of the cardstock where the edge was white.   

I love how there are some areas that didn't match up exactly when I did the 2nd stamping with the VersaMark, causing some bits of white to show through making it look like the moonlight shining on the trees and snow on the ground.

Finally, I used black embossing powder to emboss 'Wish' onto the card front.  I then layered onto white card stock, then a blue A-2 card base. 

I really love how this turned out and I'm sure I will be using these inking and embossing techniques again.

Thanks for stopping by, I'd love to hear what you think, so leave me a comment.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
