Feature A Creature

The challenge over on the Allsorts Challenge blog this week is Feature A Creature. Today I found time to get my Lavinia stamps out and make this card for the challenge. I started with a 13 x13 cm piece of card and dust all over using Stormy Sky DI, then stamped, using the same colour ink pad, the moon in the top right hand corner. I then masked the moon and added more ink with brushes. Next using a mask I placed some hills building up the same colour blue. I then stamped  the badger, trees and sentiment using Black Onyx ink. I then went around the outside using a blending tool first with Stormy Sky and then with Faded Jeans DI's and then finally I flicked some watered down white acrylic paint to create the snow. I then mounted the finished piece onto some navy card before putting it onto a 5x5 card base.

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