Tiffany Johnson Creative #100dayartplay Challenge - Day 84

Today is Day 84 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge.  This is the last days using the "inks" challenge.

I used a page from an old hymn book for the background of this piece.  I positioned one of the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Moon Masks" in the middle of the page and coloured the outer area of the moon, using four shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Blueprint Sketch, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire and Black soot), applied with blending brushes.

With the solid mask still in position, I used Dr PH Martin's bleed proof white paint with a fan shaped paint brush to create the white splatters, replicating stars.

I removed the solid moon mask, replacing it with the one showing the moon craters.  Through this stencil I applied Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink with a finger dabber.

Around the edge of the moon I used a white pastel pencil to give the impression of rays of light coming from the moon.

Next, using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, I stamped the sentiment, which is part of the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous cling stamp set called "Phrases 2".  The sentiment saying "Every possibility begins with the courage to imagine..."


  1. Loving this Sam xx

  2. This is great with the blue sky and then the added detail on the moon itself, and the rays of light made with a white pencil, and splattered white paint stars around it look wonderful Sam, and a beautiful sentiment to finish. x
