Tutorial Time: Moonlighting

Today I am going to teach you about a fun technique called Moonlighting. It's perfect for this time of year as we all start playing with our Halloween stamp sets again.


For this tutorial I am using my newly introduced House of Haunts stamp set. This tree image is absolutely perfect to showcase the Moonlighting technique.


I stamped my image with Versamark, sprinkled with Black embossing powder and heated til shiny.


Punch a circle from any scrap of cardstock using your 1" Circle punch. Use Dotto or a piece of tape that doesn't have a lot of tack and place where you want to make your moon.



Pounce your sponge in some More Mustard ink and swirl color to the top 2/3 of your image.














Pounce the same sponge in some Pumpkin Pie ink and swirl on the top 1/3 of the image.


Using a clean sponge, pounce in some Old Olive ink and swirl on the bottom 1/3 of the image.


Carefully remove the circle punch and your moon is revealed!!!!


That's all there is to it........you now know how to Moonlight!!!!


If you make a card using the technique, please send me an email or leave me a comment with a link to your card. I would love to see it!!!
