Lavinia Stamps "Snails" card

Thumbing through some of my backgrounds I have made previously, I came across one that caught my eye.  I'd used Dylusion Spray Inks and as the sheet was quite large, I decided to cut it in half before I started this project.  This is the half that I used, I then cut it down further to create a 4" square.

The colours of the sheet made me think of a night scene, so I went in that direction.  Masking off a moon and filling the circle with white and light yellow Pan Pastels and then used Van Goch Pastel Pencils to add shading to the moon.

I then stamped part of the Lavinia Stamps "Creeping Vine" and then both the snails from the "Snail Set" in Versafine Clair 'Nocturne" black ink.

I then stamped the "Spring Trees" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.  Next I stamped the foliage in the foreground, using the "Foliage Set" and the Woodland Fern" stamps.

I used a white Signo Pen, a gold shimmer gel pen and some Posca Pens for extra detail.
