Craft A Scene - By The Silvery Moon - Week 3

It's week three over on the Craft a Scene blog, and we're still asking for your scenes to be By the The Silvery Moon. For my card this week I've used all stamps by Sheena Douglas, and this wonderful steam train going through the station at night. I used distress inks to darken the card, then stamped the train and embossed with black glint embossing powder. I then took a wet brush and removed some of the ink to give light patches. I then used a white pencil and white jelly roll pen to high light some areas. For the moon I lightened using a little white gesso. I do hope that you'll find the time to pop over to the challenge blog and see what the DT have made for your inspiration.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
