Greetings friends.  Last Saturday I was demoing Impression Obsession backgrounds and ideas of what you could do with them.  I wanted to show you how you can get a lot of looks out of one background.  For this card, I used the same background as yesterday's card (Cover a Card Distressed Denim), with the same Baby Blue Impression Obsession ink.  This time though, I split the card diagonally and colored the top left corner with light blue Pan Pastel to look like the sky and the bottom right corner with grey Pan Pastels to look like night.
 
To differentiate the two sides, I also colored the Sun Burst with orange and yellow Prismacolor pencils and the Moon Star with a white Prismacolor pencil and a Stardust pen to add sparkle to the star.  I also added a few dots to look like stars using a silver sharpie. As a last step, I added the Live By sentiment. Here is a close up:

Love seeing the Distressed Denim cover-a-card stamp used again today. It's a very useful background stamp. My wish list is always filled with cover-a-card stamps. :)

Beautiful card and I love how the sun and moon have each incorporated in the statement and how the slats could be done every other one or every third in a white gel pen.... ooh la la!
