It was time to try sponging a night sky. And while my fingers might not have been left clean ;) and while my card might not be über CAS (clean and simple), there really is just the one focal point and few elements. That's my defence to the design team, at least.
I used a dollar store cosmetic sponge to apply distress inks to my cardstock until I liked the result. I mixed a little glitter into some embossing paste before adding it through a stencil to my dried panel. I brushed some Perfect Pearls mist on the moon before die-cutting the sentiment. I love how the skyline turned out! It was a happy accident. I don't have my own skyline die, and none of the ones I'd cut at Emily's house were the right colour. This one is actually kraft cardstock sprayed with two grey mists, giving it a cool, post-industrial grime look. Or something. Other than drying time, this really was easy to make and I hope sneaks into the clean and simple category. ;)
