Thinking time.....

First of all, thank-you for your lovely comments on my last post. I so enjoyed doing the She Art Workshop...so much, that I now have three completed girls, and many more going round in my head!!

This weeks challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge is Black, White and a Hint of Colour. How could I resist?? I put my She Art and post-uni-send-off cleaning aside and came up with this....



As you know I love Moon girl and will use her at any opportunity! She looks so thoughtful and peaceful sitting on Great Moon, that I thought the sentiment from a Wendy Vecchi stamp was perfect. The background is created with Dylusions Sky Blue Ink sprayed over a mask, and a tiny bit of glitter on the wings gave them a lovely sparkle. Proud of myself for using stamped masks too, to make a one-layer card....took a bit of thinking about the right order to stamp things, but got there in the end! I also got my sewing machine out for the first time in ages, but found doing 'wiggly' lines a bit of a challenge......in my dressmaking days I was a strictly '5/8 " girl'!!!! I like the effect though, and think I will practice a bit more!

Thanks for looking, and for your kind comments!
