Dusk to Dawn................

..............and a challenge

It has been a very dull rainy day today just the day for getting inky so taking my inspiration from this
photo

 
 
and with the challenge at Craft a Scene - Dusk to Dawn in mind , a few of my favourite stamps, a little imagination,  I got very inky and made a card.....
 
 

Distress inks were used to create the background onto super smooth white card firstly a light layer of wild honey then used a mask for the moon and reapplied wild honey until I was happy, also at this point I lightly sprayed with water and dried with heat gun.  Dusty concord was used for the bottom of the card getting darker towards the bottom, I stamped the hills (listed below) also in same colour, flowers and grasses stamped at the bottom in black archival, I wanted these to be in the shadow so using more dusty concord and black soot I darkened the edges.  Tree branches were stamped in Black Archival and my favourite little owl was embossed in black.  This was then mounted onto a piece of black card which I distressed the edges before adding to orange card and mounting onto card blank.
 
Thanks for looking
'till next time
