Life is Beautiful

Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful Easter Weekend.   It's been a little cool but sunny so we managed to work outside, it felt great.

I have a card today featuring a beautiful Moth by Designs by Ryn.   All of Ryn's stamp designs are hand drawn, they are fantastic :)


The background is Cut Grass & Lemon Zest Dylusions inks.  I also used a few stencils with Distress Inks.   I stamped Lucine the Moth on separate water colour paper with Colbalt Archival ink and coloured with Tombow markers.  I decoupaged them over the background and added stickles.   I also edged the background with a blue glitter embossing powder.     The sentiment is from one of the Art Specially events in the Netherlands.


Thanks for you visit and have a great day,
Shirley
