Lavinia Stamps February 2020 Monthly Challenge "Beneath The Moon"

On the first of each month, Lavinia Stamps announce a new monthly challenge theme.  The theme for February is "Beneath The Moon".

For this sample, I decided to make it with a "Love" feel... well it is February, calling it "The Moon of Love'!

I started with a white card base, masking off a circle for the moon, adding colour using the following Distress Oxide Inks:  Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries and Wild Honey. I then removed the circle mask and added a touch of "Scattered Straw" Distress Oxide Ink to the moon shape.

Using a Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, I stamped the background "Background Script".

The remaining stamping was all done using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, starting with the "Star Gazing" couple, then the "Silhouette Thistle", the "Heart Hill Border" and then the word "Love" which is part of the "Live The Life" stamp set.

I then mounted the image on black and co-ordinating card before stamping the "Together We Have" sentiment at the top and the bottom of the card.

Finally, using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen, I added some gold shimmer highlights to the thistles and the fairy.
