SAF - Starry Night with Amy Sheffer

Hi everyone,  here's the first of a few posts as I try to catch up from SAF.  I know I won't be able to do all of them before 7am tomorrow morning though.  There just aren't enough hours in a day.  LOL!

I didn't quite have everything Amy used, but made do with what I had.  I think I should invest in some black and white acrylic paint and some makeup wedges.

Just a few minor changes were made...

Gina K Pure White Luxury CS
TH's watercolor paper
PTI's inks: Enchanted Evening, Blueberry Sky, Aqua Mist, Mint Julep, Winter Wisteria and Pale Peony
SU's Mossy Meadow Reinker
PTI's Inspired Prayer Die
PTI's Inspired Prayer Stamp Set
Sequins and Silver thread
Perfect Pearls

As you can see, I did try to make my own trees with my green reinker.  The first tree (3rd one in from the left) was a bit too wet.  The rest of them turned out pretty good considering it was the first time I ever tried to "paint" trees with a paint brush.  Also, my Perfect Pearls were too wet and spread out a bit too much.

This was a fun card to make.  Thanks, Amy for the challenge.  It was a lot of fun.  There are some beautiful starry night skies here


  1. This turned out SO pretty Sue and I am quite impressed with your painted trees! :0)

  2. Another stunning card! Your hand painted trees are awesome!!
