Less is More with One Layer & Wings

Hi everyone,

I'm back already as I have a card to enter into this week's Challenge at  Less is More.  It's One Layer week with the theme of "Wings".

I recently purchased a few Faerie stamps from  Lavinia through their on-line store.  I decided to use Tree Goddess "Luna" for this card.   I love this design and thought she would look good on a clean & simple card with a 'moon' behind her.     However these Faerie stamps work well with 'scenery' background that are shown at their gallery on their website.   Beautiful designs !  


I embossed the Faerie with black and used a piece of cardstock with a circle cut-out for a mask and blended Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress Inks to create the moon.   I coloured her wings and the few clear areas on the tree trunk with co-ordinating Distress Markers and added holograph glitter.   "Dream" is from a Kaisercraft set - Life Sentiments.    These colours make me think of Halloween.  

Thanks for your visit and have a great day,
Shirley

  14. What a lovely silhouette image! The yellow sun (or moon) adds just the right amount of color to your card, and the sentiment fits the image so well.

  15. This looks fabulous... I love how the branch emerges from the edge of the card, and is not simply floating in mid air.
    Super card.
    Thanks so much
