HEY FRIENDS! I’m back today with a post that’s packed with info! A few days ago, I featured the image of the bears from the new Anita Jeram Stargazer stamp set by Colorado Craft Company. Today, I’m featuring the bunnies AND I have a new video on my YouTube channel to show you how to create a night sky using Copic markers and stenciling with Distress Inks.

As always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Today’s project features:

I’m not very good at free-hand drawing so I often rely on stenciling to build scenes. So when I saw the Moon Mask Stencil by Stampers Anonymous / Tim Holtz, I knew that I would put it to good use. The set contains multiple masks so that you can create moons in three different sizes. For today’s project, I used the medium sized mask. It was the perfect size to highlight the bunnies!

I created a video to show you not only how to color the image, but how to stencil the moon. You’ll also see what happens when you try to color with a marker that is going dry and the difference it makes having a filled marker.

For this card, I did use X-Press It Blending Card by Copic. I don’t always use it because despite being described as bright white, it seems to have a gray undertone that clashes with my Neenah cardstock. However, here I knew that it would be entirely covered and the unique properties of this paper made it the best choice for this project. The image was stamped with Hero Arts Intense Black ink which is suitable for alcohol markers.

Once the coloring was complete, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Clair in Nocturne. I covered the ink with clear embossing powder and heat set it.
