Lavinia World Challenge #17

Hi everyone, it's time for the next challenge at Lavinia World Challenges.  Please check it out and join in the fun.

I've created 2 cards using Tree Goddess Luna.

I was going for a sunrise scene on the first card, using the MISTI to stamp Luna in lavender ink and the branch in brown ink.

I then restamped Luna so I could it as a mask over the main image.  Using 3 colors of Brilliance ink with art daubers, I added colors to the panel.  The mask made it easy to add color to the background only.  The dauber fit perfectly in the tree branches, giving the illusion of an orb or looking glass.

I used Lawn Fawn dies to die cut the stamped panel, then matted it with peach and black cardstock.

The background panel was embossed and lightly inked, then added to a black card.  A strip of sparkly ribbon from LARibbons was added across the center.

Brave, from Brave and Beloved was stamped on white cardstock and then punched out.  It was matted with a larger punch and added to the upper corner of the panel.  Nuvo drops were added to her wings for a little shimmer.

My second card uses the same image, but I stamped her in black ink.

I also used a mask so I could color the background with light blue ink.

Using a large circle die, she was die cut, being careful not to cut off the edges.  Again, I used orange ink to add color to the center of the tree limbs creating an orb.

I created a gate fold card from navy cardstock and added pattern paper panels before adding Luna to the card.  Dream is from Once Upon a Dream.  Since I only wanted that one word, I just inked that word then punched it so I could add it to the card.

Then I added Nuvo drops to her wings.

Would love to see what you create for Challenge #17.  The winner of the challenge will receive a
$15 gift certificate to Lavinia World to shop for more goodies.   Remember there is a new challenge every other Thursday.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for stopping by.
