Under the moonlight

English / Italiano

Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!


This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is “Get In Shape”

This week we would like you to create something shapely! You could create something 3D, a box or folder for example, or you could create a card with 3D elements or a fitness theme. Whatever you decide to make, we will be looking forward to seeing it!


I cut a rectangle from a piece of light cardboard – I also cut another rectangle to create the frame. To make it “tridimensional” i glued down some more strips of light cardoard to make it look like a true frame. I covered the backrgound with a page of old book and then I added a textured tape and some modeling paste through a stencil. I let it dry then I used distress paint to cover the entire background.


With the modeling paste I created the moon. Then, when the modeling paste was still wet, I added some crackle paint. I set aside to dry. Meanwhile I colored the frame with distress paint and highlighted the sides with distess ink. When the moon was dry, I glued the frame to the background.
I cut a boat shape and I colored it with dark colors, after all this is a night scene.


I made a figure with the wire and I cut a piece of heart and glued it to the hand of the wire guy. I added some more details with a white pencil and a black one. Then I stapled the wire around the frame just to add some more texture and interest.
The stickers was perfect for the whole scene, Go where your heart takes you (but take your mind with you too, just in case! LOL)
