Lavinia Stamps May 2019 Monthly Challenge - Make It Bright (Sample #3)

Every month, Lavinia Stamps has a monthly challenge,   It's a random draw, so everybody who enters has a chance of winning the £40 of vouchers to spend on Lavinia goodies.  

The theme of the May 2019 challenge is "Make It Bright".

As part of the Lavinia Stamps Design Team, we are asked to produce three samples for the challenge.  This is my third sample which I have called "The Moon Call".

I used a background that I had prepared a few weeks back using Brusho in Emerald Green and Gamboge.

I masked off a circle for the moon and added a grey ring for definition using Distress Ink

I stamped the "Spring Trees" in Versafine Clair ink, using the "Morning Mist" for the distant trees and the "Nocturne" for the ones in the foreground.  I then stamped "Maka" the seated wolf in the same ink.

I then created the landscape using Distress Inks and a torn piece of card, I also added some purple areas to the sky to give it a more dramatic look.

Finally, I added some "Mini Slender Mushrooms" to the foreground and added white highlights, using a Signo Pen, across the card to give the impression of light hitting surfaces.
