Hibiscus and Moon Wings

Hey everyone,

Hope you're doing well :) Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments on my posts. So appreciated! A really quick post today. Not much time to write details. Here's a brief summary...

I used my typical technique of a Dylusions ink spray background on mixed media paper. Stamped the Hibiscus leaves from my collection in black Versa Fine ink. Sealed it with Golden - Regular Gel (gloss). Pops out the colours even more! I then used modeling paste through my Hibiscus stencil - let dry - then put the stencil back overtop and sponged on acrylic paint to colour it. The moth (Lucine from unmounted sheet: Moon Wings) was stamped onto a separate piece of mixed media paper. I coloured it with Tombow markers, cut it out and stuck it on with more Golden - Regular Gel (gloss). When dry I add crackle accents on top. Love how it makes the moth look furry. Last touch was to add some rhinestones to the sky! I lie... The last touch was to mat it. The card didn't look finished until I saw it with that orange border. It tied all of the colours together...

Hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Off I go for now!
