An Autumn Day

Hello folks,
Thank you for visiting.  For those of you who expressed concern about the mouse in the airing cupboard, I am sure you will be pleased to know that he was safely caught (after a few more days in the warm!) and is now living outside.

Today's card is made using another of the lovely tree stamps from Clarity.

For the centre square, I stamped the tree in brown archival ink, then used copy paper masks to add the moon and some ground.

I squished the same colour inks on to a glass mat, then spritzed with a small amount of water and picked up the ink on a sponge and lightly added it to the card.  I also added a touch of glimmer spray.

I mopped up the ink with a paper towel, allowed it to dry then stamped and embossed the butterflies with crystal embossing powder and cut them out.  I got this idea from my crafty friend, Moira.

I then assembled it all.
