VIDEO TUTORIAL OF THE CARD (PLEASE WATCH IT TO UNDERSTAND ALL STEPS IN DETAIL):

First of all fold in two the card and fix it with tape.

Cover 1 cm for each side of the front of the card.

Once the card is secured, sketch the scene with pencil.

Step 2: INK

Trace the drawing with pigment fineliner, except for the moon and the star.

Erase pencil strokes under the ink.

Step 3: SKY

Paint the sky wet on wet, using purple, blue and yellow.

Add few drops of fuchsia.
