Craft a Scene Challenge #3 - Moonlight

Hello everyone! I have been creating a little today and one of the cards I finally finished is my DT card for the new challenge over at Craft a Scene.  The theme this month is Moonlight.  We need to make a card that shines a little moonlight on our surroundings.


My card features a new stamp I purchased from Sutter Stamps and leftover pieces of my My Minds Eye Stella Rose paper pack.


I tried one of Sandy's techniques of masking the moon space and then applying color.  I cut the moon shape from my Spellbinders small circle. I used Adirondack Lettuce and Meadow to color the greenery.  I wasn't quite happy with the effect so I added a little Copic G17 to the stalks and the lily pads.  The blues are Cloudy Blue, Denim and Stream.  A white gel pen added the water highlights.


Card Recipe
Images: Sutter Stamps Swan Lake H-1096
Paper: My Minds Eye Stella and Rose, Turquoise blue from my stash, Michael's black
Markers/Ink: Adirondack Lettuce, Meadow, Denim, Stream, Cloudy Blue, Copics - G17, E18
Embellishments: Wild Orchard flowers and corner charms, SU Pearls
