I got a chance to play along with the current Stampsmith Challenge and this one is based on a sketch that you can see on the challenge blog post. I haven't worked much with sketches, and thanks to Lynne's inspiration, I flipped the sketch. I should confess that I drew out the sketch and had it on my table upside down and thought - hey, the big circle could be silvery moonlight and I went from there! I used a flapper photo stamp from the Stampsmith and added some lace to one side so it was more of a square shape like the sketch. I also wanted some Art Deco style patterns as in the vertical strip and my circle. That circle - or the moon - is actually silver paint sponged through a damask template overlayed with a big circle template. The horizontal strip from the template is the lines of music from one of Chopin's Nocturnes - a musical composition inspired by the night. Finally I stamped some subtle text in the background with the circle masked and added a bit of pumice distress ink.
