Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree by Guest Joy Cinotto

What a wonderful spin on the Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set!  This night sky inspired card was created by Joy Cinotto, today’s guest stamper and a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community.

Joy’s INSPIRATION:  Inspiration for this card goes far back to when I was a child. I was always drawn to the dark night sky’s glow from the full moon and dancing, twinkling stars.

A TIP from Joy for the moon:  Basic Black marker & Basic Gray marker were scribbled onto the craft mat, and spritzed with water.  White Vellum card stock was laid on top of the spritzed ink, swirled gently and minutely.  A 1-3/4″ Circle Punch was used for the moon.
