The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Night & Day

The weekly challenge on the Craft Barn blog is to make the same project twice - one coloured for night-time and the other for daytime. I've chosen to make two simple ATCs. I stamped the flower heads first and then the moon/sun area was masked before applying the Distress Ink background to the card with a brush - in my mind much easier to apply than with a foam pad on the wood applicator. I gave a very light dusting of colour to the moon to take away the starkness of the white card and then coloured the sun before stamping the ducks.

These are lovely - a nice contrast between day and night.

Love your scene! I get the sense of tranquillity of early night and early morning. I have to admit I thought they were trees rather than flowers!

Works excellently as day and night.

Beautiful Maggie, I prefer to use a brush too! Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.
