A Moth named Luna

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.

I have another card design using stamps by Designs by Ryn.  This Moth, Luna, is another beauty from her Moth collection

,

I blended Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn & Picked Raspberry Distress Inks over watercolour paper & flicked water over it to create the water marks.   I over stamped Leafy Branch with Mowed Lawn DI & added a little white with a Neocolour Crayon.  I stamped Luna the Moth with black Stazon Ink, coloured with my Tombow markers & highlighted a little with a white Gelly Roll pen.

Happy Birthday is from Chocolate Baroque's Birthday Words set.

If you get a chance please stop by my teammate's - Miranda's and Eileen's Blogs.   Also Ryn's Facebook page is updated regularly with creations using her stamps.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

  7. I love the way your sprinkling of gems in the bottom left echoes the watermarks of the Picked Raspberry area top right - terrific! The white Neocolor touches are superbly effective too on those leaves & I like the way the script of your sentiment (swirls is also echoed by those leaves. The texture you achieved on that moth is incredible - I can almost stroke it & feel the the little feathery velvetness. A really lovely treat to see.

  9. Shirley, this is wonderful! The luna moth is gorgeous. I will never forget when I found one in Las Vegas of all places. It was back in 1961, so Vegas was a lot different back then LOL. I especially like your moth because you have colored the two sides differently - same techniques, but different colors. The branch in the background looks AMAZING. So pretty, Shirley, with all the colors. Is your stamping studio very colorful? hugs, de
