By the light of the moon

This week it is Liz Borer again on the Paperartsy blog. In her project she made a beautiful background, that I wanted to recreate. This is the result:

I started with a piece of white cardstock, and used embossing folders for trees and foliage. Then I coloured the card with Fresco Acrylics, using several blue colours. The trees and foliage are coloured with Treasure Gold. The moon was stencilled using a circle cut out of paper, and coloured with Snowflake.

The flower in the foreground is from a stamp from the Paperartsy HP1004 sheet, that I inked the with green and brown Zig markers.

Also submitted for the Three Muses challenge, their theme this week is By the Light of the Moon.

Gorgeous! great texture that contrast really well with the stamping. Really love how you did those flowers. Their shape was a perfect choice against the moon.
