Lavinia Stamps "Red Pine" Night Scene

Today the weather over Anglesey, is a total contrast to that of yesterday.  I think the only way to describe today is "bleak", with high winds and rain hurtling on to the windows.  It just makes me feel miserable and I think that mood is reflected in the card I've just made. 

I started off with a small square off-cut of black card, a fraction under four inches.

I used Brilliance ink in two shades, Platinum Planet and Moonlight White to create the moon.

I then multi stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Red Pine" trees, I used both the small and the large size, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I then coated the stamping in Wow! Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.

I used the torn edge of a piece of paper with the "Moonlight White" Brilliance ink pad to create the snow scene in the foreground.  I used the same ink very lightly in the sky to create a cloudy look.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the owl.  The owl is part of the Lavinia Stamps "Brodwin and Maylin" stamp set then coated in Wow! clear embossing powder and heat set the image.
