The theme at My Time To Craft this week is Things with Wings.
I watched Jill Tuck on television yesterday demonstrating the Moonshadow Inks & Spray Mists, so I decided to use mine for this challenge. I still had the papers from this weeks Skinny challenge to hand, so I combined the two to make a Thank You card.
I started by making the Moonshadow papers. I took a piece of textured card & did a wash with Buccaneer Bronze & then dabbed more splodges over the whole card. This was left to dry. Taking the wet brush, I used the leftover ink to cover a piece of plain white card. I put this to one side to dry.
Once the textured card had dried, I sprayed it with a mist of Buccaneer Bay Blue.
I inked a script stamp from Crafty Individuals with Archival Ink (Sepia) & stamped the image onto the dried plain card.
On a piece of watercolour card, I stamped the large dragonfly stamp by Elusive Images (from Graphicus) with Archival Ink (Jet Black). Taking a fine brush, I then coloured the dragonfly, again using Moonshadow. Once dried, I cut the dragonfly out & covered the back with walnut stain Distress Ink (as only the body & tail were to be attached to the script card).
The small dragonfly was stamped onto a small tag & set with a bronze eyelet.
I hope this image captures the magic of Moonshadow & demonstrates the different effects that you can create using them. Click on the image to see a larger picture.
I have also used this card for the Arty Girlz challenge this week.
