Following a tutorial from Doubtfires Musings, I used my corner punch to create the black circle on this card. I then layered red card stock behind it and punched a circle in the middle. I next hand punched the hearts, layering black behind the red panel. Pretty cool, huh? The last step was to add the Martha Stewart lace down the sides. So I had this really cool layout with no idea what to put in the middle.
Then I remembered my Sun and Moon stamp from DogGoneStamps. Well, it fit perfectly in the center. This stamp reminds me of the movie LadyHawke, where the heroine spent her days as a hawk and the hero spent his nights as a wolf and they were cursed to be in love but never able to be together. It is a very good film, a two hankie, but with some action to keep the guys satisfied.
Anyway, I think this sun (the lady) and the moon (the man) are fated to only get a glimpse of each other at dusk and dawn. I colored them with my Copics, B21 for the moon and Y21 for the sun. Then I swirled my blender pen over the color to give it a kind of mottled look. Her lips are R29. So I was trying to think of a saying and the song "Night and Day" popped into my head. Perfect, so I computer generated the words, added some pearls and I was done. Finished size is 5 3/8" square.
Well, I just flipped on the TV and was channel surfing and the movie Night and Day with Cary Grant is playing. I guess it is fate!
