In my heart it will remain my stardust melody...the memory of love's refrain...

Hey yall, I can't believe it's Thursday already? And does anyone know where October went? Seriously! Total craziness.

So it's time again for an Elzybells challenge! This time, Elizabeth challenged us to create a card using only black, white, and one other color. (Skin tone was NOT considered a color). So I only cheated a teensy bit. *wink*


I decided to use the girl from the Stardust & Moonbeams set as my main image. I stamped her in Brilliance Black ink on watercolor paper, then watercolored her with a waterbrush & reinkers. To make the moon shiny, I used my shimmery Pearlescent watercolors (the white one, of course!), and then added shadow with my grey Peerless watercolor. I had to add a little brown and yellow for her hair, but you won't tell, will you? *grin*

My finished card measures 5 1/4" square with mats cut with scalloped square nestabilities and embossed with the Swiss dots embossing folder. The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder, and then I added a few Swarovski crystals for fun. Pretty easy!

You can check out Elizabeth's blog for the link to all the other creations submitted for the challenge. As for me, I'm off for now. Have a wonderful day!!
