Craft a Scene Challenge 3 - Moonlight

Today is the third challenge over at Craft a Scene; the theme this month is Moonlight. And we have a sponsor for this challenge, Kevin from Stampscapes is giving the challenge winner a $25 shopping spree at his website.  How generous is that?


I love making tall scenes and this was inspired by a scene from Kevin's gallery,   Kevin's scene is done with dye inks on glossy paper.  I created mine on Cryogen metallic paper and colored it with Copics.  All stamps are from Stampscapes rubber stamps.  I started with the Seaside Cove stamp first, then added Boulders with Lichen in the foreground which I masked with Eclipse tape.  Next I added the sand pattern.  To create the sky, I stamped Eerie Moon in the sky, filling in with Cloud Strips above and below it.  Next I added Palm Island.  I added some color to the sand and island - E31, rocks E70.  I then airbrushed blue into the sky and around the edges; B28, B29, B39.  The last step was to add the palm Fronds top and bottom.  Finished size is 4 x 9.25 inches and will fit a business envelope.  Be sure to visit the Craft a Scene challenge blog for more inspiration and to join in on the fun.

Amazing moonlit night! Looks real.

WHOOPS! Looks like I goofed. The sand stamp pattern is not in the sky, it's the cloud strips. Next time I'll read your description better. Sorry.
Still a great scene. Edna
