Layers: Block Printing Over Screen Printing

 My next step is to overprint with block printing.  I cover the surface with block printing.  I use Jacquard Lumiere metallic in Pewter and Silver and mix it with Setacolor Opaque White and Setacolor Transparent Black.  I am very careful with my color placement.  I am keeping the lighter shades to the upper third and gradually going darker as I move towards the bottom and top of the piece.  I want to convey a glow from the moon, but darkness of night and I hope for the text to convey a feeling of twinkling stars that twinkle from behind the block printing.
