Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - September Challenge

Hello and welcome to Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - September challenge right here on my blog! So glad you decided to check out this month's theme and hope you will join in and share something this month! Be sure to scroll down to see if you were one of my last month's top picks!

This Month's Theme:

For the month of September I selected the theme of .....................

Things with Wings

Fairies, Butterflies, Dragonflies, Angels, Bugs, Bats or even Airplanes just to give you some ideas!

I had my Lavinia stamps out from an earlier project and decided to use them again for today's challenge card. 

I made the background using a mix of Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Shaded Lilac, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire  and a mask to make some hills. I make my own masks by simply tearing printer paper. 

The "Lunar Buds" blossoms by Lavinia were stamped with Faded Jeans ink and the sentiment with Chipped Sapphire ink. This is an old wood mounted sentiment from Penny Black. The fairies were stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. 

To finish off the card, I decided to use my Circle Explosions stencil to add some dots using Wilted Violet Oxide ink. Finally I went over the edges with Chipped Sapphire ink and a blending tool to darken them up a bit.

Oh, and I used my Sakura stardust glitter pen on the moon.
