Look up, look way up!

Here’s another card using an Eat Cake Graphics images – it’s called “Looking up” and could be used for many different scenes depending on what they were looking at, such as: a lightning storm, Aurora Borealis, shooting stars, a plane, bugs or birds – and lots more!

Looking up:
Card dimensions – 3 3/4” x 8 1/2”

Materials: CS – (Bazzill); Paper –Accademia (Fabriano); Ink – Black StazOn (Tsukineko); Stamps – Looking Up 1061-L (Eat Cake Graphics); Tombow markers, waterbrush, , foam tape, black hemp twine (CTMH), computer generated poem.

I hand-drew the little stars dangling from the black twine.  Just draw, cut them out and then stick them to the end of your ribbon or string wiht glue dots.
To make the twinkling stars in the night sky – I used the blade of my cutting knife to scrape off the watercolouring to reveal the plain watercolour paper underneath. That is a nice, neat way to show the light paper when you need to. Just be careful not to press so hard that you rip your paper and scene! Here’s a closer look:

Until next time, have a great day!
