This is my second take on this digi. I went with same layout, size and similar design as on my first card I made using this digi. You can find my first card here.
I already had a layout template saved on my computer. I printed it out directly on a card base, for which I used a white cardstock paper. To prevent ink smearing, I left the image dry couple hours. I mixed a Distress Ink Hickory Smoke with a lot of water and used that for shading. When I was satisfied with shades, I masked the Moon and splattered card front with Distress Ink Hickory Smoke mixed with water. I dried splatters using Heat It Tool. Then I watercolored the Moon. I used Distress Inks Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber.
Lastly, I glued two black star stickers on the card, which look same as stars on the image, and my card was finished. :o)
I like this "negative" night sky look. I will definitely use this design again using other stars and Moon images I have. :o)

First I made a background panel/patterned panel. I used a triangle stripe pattern from the 'Geometric Patterns' stamp set, inked the stripe with Distress Ink Iced Spruce and stamped it on a watercolor paper panel couple times to create a pattern. I also used a tiny triangle stamp from the 'Cactus' stamp set to create the pattern. I stamped tiny triangles overlapping larger triangles. I followed the same pattern and got beautiful geometrical background/paper/panel. I trimmed the panel, glued it on a grey cardstock paper panel and glued everything on a top folded white card base.
Next up was an image. I stamped a plant from the 'Plants' stamp set on a thick watercolor paper, colored the plant in watercolor technique using Distress Ink Iced Spruce and Green aquarel colored pencils. After drying, I added extra shades on leaves with Green colored pencils and drew white highlights. I fussy cut the plant, leaving thin white border around her.
I heat embossed in white a sentiment from the 'Plants' set on the grey cardstock paper stripe, glued foam squares on the back of it and placed it on the card.
I glued foam squares on the back of the plant and placed her on the card. I like dimension difference, so I used 1 mm thicker foam squares for the plant than for the sentiment.
As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with light and dark grey enamel dots.
