Love/Valentine February Challenge at LEJ Design

Happy Saturday, my friends, and huge apologies for bringing my card for the LEJ Designs, February Challenge, Love/Valentine....I had a fall on Wednesday, and am still in lots of pain, yesterday, I just could not get out of my bed...so sorry, but hope that you are all well and looking forward to having a fabulous weekend.

Using Out for a Stroll (is there anything more Romantic, than an evening stroll?)
Make A Scene Rubber Stamp Set, a gift from Lindsay Jolly, (Craftymonster81) thank you Lindsay
Imagination Crafts - Black Glossy Card
Imagination Crafts - Moonlight - Mica Powders
Imagination Crafts - Black Stars - Sparkle Medium

I started off with a 6 x 6" Scalloped Square Card Blank, Black Glossy Card, cut to 14" and matted onto Bronze Mirri Card cut to 14.5".  I used the stamp set, inked it up with Versamark Ink Pad, then dabbed Mica Powders in various colours, brushed off the excess, then used a bit of Kitchen Towel, to rub the rest of the excess off...excess going into my extra pot, to be used later...I then brayered some Black Stars, Sparkle Medium over the top of the Black Glossy Card...this made my Night Sky, I die cut the smallest round, from white photo gloss card..to make my moon...I also used a spare bit of Black Glossy card, and covered it with Black Stars, Sparkle Medium, when it was dry, I die cut small stars from it...I also used some star gems from my stash and the Adore Tim Holtz sentiment, which was dusted with Blue Pan Pastels.  I had already printed out Out for a Stroll, coloured with Promarkers' and fussy cut, which I shaped and used Silicone Glue to adhere to the Black glossy card....
