- Die-cut out of chosen cardstock colors all of the elements from the Arthur, Colorize die set. (Note: With Colorize die sets, there are suggested colors etched in the back of each die to assist with ease of assembly. For this particular project, brown tones replaced shades of purple. For tonal variation replace the darkest shade with alternate color’s darkest shade, replace the medium shade with another color’s medium shade and so on.)
- Fold an A4 Sheet of ivory cardstock in half to create a card base, then trim the card to a preferred size. The example uses an 8" x 9" base.
- Cut a 3" x 5" panel of black cardstock. Apply a small amount of white paint to a craft mat and spray with a water bottle. One or two sprays is more than enough. Then mix with the water and paint with a palette knife so that the paint is slightly more watery. With the palette knife flick small flecks of paint around on the black panel. This will give the appearance of stars. (Optional: Repeat this process with yellow paint and light blue paint.)
- When the paint is dry, adhere the panel to the card front at a slight angle with liquid adhesive.
- Die-cut out of ivory cardstock a small circle from the Circles die set. Wipe the craft mat clean and apply one of the two ink colors directly to the mat. Spray the ink with a water. Dab the die cut circle into the droplets of ink to create the blotted effect on the moon. Set aside the circle to dry and then repeat the same process on the circle with another ink color.
- Arrange the circle and owl elements on the card front as desired with foam tape.
