A Thank You Card

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. 

I have also used this card for the Arty Girlz challenge this week.
