I dotted some White Craft Ink into the sky with a small brush for subtle stars
I will be giving it to my wonderful husband for Fathers' Day.

I used the piece I cut from the edge of the panel to decorate the inside of the card
The techniques used are sponging and the reflection technique.  There are many great tutorials available for this technique which simply involves stamping the silhouette image onto a shiny surface such as a a piece of Window Sheeet, acetate or (as I do) the plastic sheet that forms part of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, turning it ink side down, positioning it and rubbing so that the ink transfers to the cardstock.

I hope you've enjoyed this card and I welcome your comments.
