Selini with Japanese Anemone

Happy Spring !

I have a design today using one of Designs by Ryn's Moths - Selini and and her new stencil - Japanese Anemone.   Her moths are gorgeous and now available on a unmounted sheet called Moon Wings and are offered at an excellent price.





The background was a lot of fun to create.  I started with Distress Paints spritzed with water and then let it run.   I blended Distress Ink over top with the Japanese Anemone stencil.  Next I used white acrylic paint over a Memory Box stencil and stamped rings with the paint and a little bottle lid.  I stamped the little dots using a stamp from Magenta but it could easily be done with a marker tip.  Really the stamp is more useful if I wanted to emboss the dots.   I stamped one of the little water droplets from the Textures sheet.   I stamped Selini on a separate sheet, painted with Inktense pencils and acrylic paints.    I covered the entire design with gloss gel and highlighted on the wings with stickles.  

Here is a close up:


Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,

  27. I love the shades of green with the little touches of gold and the sparkle on the moth's wings. The Japanese Anemone stencil used in the background is so pretty and love the bits of white acrylic and the water droplets look good on any card. The moth is gorgeously coloured too. A beautiful card Shirley. x
