In their cards, the moon is masked off and the ink glow is sponged on. There’s no simple way to sponge in MDS, so I had a challenge. Here’s what I came up with:
I used drop shadows and opacity to create the moonlighting effect. I tried using the same color palette as Howe and Olchefske (Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze). Unfortunately, it looked more like a glowing hot sun than the moon. When I switched to a monochromatic palette, and the colors blended much better.
Here is the supply list for the card:
