How to Create a Moon by Masking

This week I will show you how to create a moon.  Although I am using a lighthouse image, any image will do.

My card and tutorial was inspired by this week’s challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.  This week’s challenge is to find a sketch and run with it.  My sketch came from Bev at Lili of the Valley’s Challenge Blog.

How do you like my mosaic?  It is called Mosaic Magic and came from the August 2006 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.

Supplies:  Stamp Image, Ink pads, circle punch/punches, post-it notes, sponges

Stamp out images twice

Cut and punch out your masks

To adhere mask I use these sticker squares because they do not tear the paper when lifting off the mask.

After punching post-it note and placing your mask (the lighthouse) in place, position your post-it note where you would like your moon to go.  Sponge yellow or gold around the circle to create the moon.

Nest, place a punched circle over the moon and hold in place while sponging. Sponge a medium blue around the top of the skyline.

Next, use another colour for the sky.  I chose Adirondack’s Citrus, but you may choose a purple to act as a sunset.

Finish sponging image.

Sponging accent pieces adds a nice touch to your finished card.
