Eventide Falls at The Stampman

Hi Again

Wow I'm on a roll now, catching up on all the Dt work I've been missing and getting the creative juices flowing well (touch wood) loved making this one for The Stampman Challenge this week

I used

Silver & Kaleidoscope embossing powders

It was great to play with embossing powders again, crafting has been so focused on inking, I havn't used them for quite a while.

I started off embossing the moon in silver (then masking) and the moths in kaleidoscope powder, inking with the TH Distress inks.  A few quick dragonfly stamps and stars in versafine, with a little stickles had the background finished, then a couple more moths stamped with stazon on acetate and the jobs a good un!

Quite a quick card really - for me!!

Hope you have a great weekend and find time to come over to The Stampman to have a play with us!
x Michelle

This is gorgeous Michelle. I love how you have done the moon, it looks so realistic. Did the words come from the Oriental Love Letters plate. I am always on the look out for nice words.

Wow, Wow Wow, Michelle. You've done it again. I love your textured moon, it's so lifelike and the dragonflies are just beautiful. This was a brilliant theme, thanks for choosing it.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.

This is so beautiful and stunning Michelle. You would almost expect the wings to start fluttering and sparkling in the moonlight. Fab. Hope all is well. Angela
