Moonlight madness



When I saw the new challenge at Scrapbook Sisters Card this week it was a must............you know me.......any opportunity to incorporate a moon somewhere into my work. So two for the price of one, a full moon and a crescent moon.

But before I move on to how I made my cards I want to say "La ringrazio molto" to Sadia and "Thank you" to Sandra for passing awards on to me this week. You all know I've got a rotten track record passing them on so I would like to say it's for all my lovely blog friends, please accept with my love.........I'm sure this is not what the rules say........but when did I ever follow rules ?


Both are stamped with Stayzon onto masked and brayered backgrounds, the fairy one using the centre colours of Big and Juicy Happy Birthday and the Santa one using Adirondack eggplant.

The fairy Sweet Pea Midnight Waiting has been coloured with the same B&J ink pad and Aquamarkers and the wings liberally glittered......as all good fairy should be. The DP is October Afternoon, flowers from stash and the sentiment computer generated. This cards is for the following challenges:

Scrapbook Sisters - Full Moon
Creative Inspirations - Birthday theme
Everybody Art - Sketch

The house stamp on the Santa scene is Art Impressions V1562 which has been lightly coloured with Tim Holtz inks and the rooftops glittered with Judikins snow glitter. Santa is Magenta 02045-6 stamped with Adirondack eggplant and some punched snowflakes to decorate. This card is for the following challenges:

Anything Goes - Christmas has come early
Glitterbabes - Anything goes


And one final share using a favourite Penny Black stamp............well yes I know, I love them all........Penny Black 4078K Reach for the Starts and the matching sentiment 4057F. The image is coloured with Copics and decoupaged, the DP is Magnolia, the border Martha Steward doily lace trim and a rose made from the same DP with punched leaves. This card is for the following challenges:

CRAFT - Shaped card
Cute Card Thursday - Make your own

Well done on your lovely award Brenda!

What beautiful cards you are sharing with us today, the turquoise shades of the fantasy card are stunning.
Your moonlit sky is stunning, I really really need to try to master that technique as it looks so beautiful but my favourite just has to be the beautiful little girl reaching for the stars! She is just perfect and in lovely rich warm shades too.

Have a lovely week,
Keryn x

lisa said...

Three gorgeous cards as always. I'd be hard pushed to pick a favourite but it'd probably be Santa over the rooftops. I love how you've coloured that one.
It can't still be raining in the fens today. Don't tell me you haven't got this beautiful sunshine today. I'll blow some your way if not!!
Thank you for your very kind cakey comments. It must be so frustrationg not to be able to do things you enjoy, my Mum can't do it anymore either because of her arthritis in her hands.
Hope you are feeling well today.
hugs Lisax
