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.
