Inspired by a Song

I finally tried Dana's inky sky technique!  I printed out two copies of the digital stamp, and cut out one to use as a mask so I could do the sky.  The overall love feel of the card, and specifically the sentiment, were inspired by a song that keeps being an earworm for me - I Love You Always Forever. Thanks to Open-Minded Crafting Fun for hosting one of my favourite challenges, inspired by a song - I listen to music always when I craft so I bet a lot of my cards are actually inspired by that!


Supplies: Digi stamp from Sami Stamps; sentiment from Reverse Confetti; Spectrum Noir markers; Sharpie white paint pen; distress inks in Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, and Black Soot; Pearl Tattered Angels mist


After inking the sky and adding the white stars, I spritzed lightly with pearl mist. I really really love how it turned out :)

And before I go, the video for my inspiration song :) You are welcome for having it stuck in your head all day!
