Craft A Scene Challenge #3 Moonlight

There is nothing more soothing than standing outside and being bathed in moonlight.  This month, the challenge at Craft A Scene, is to create a project showing moonlight.


I started with a forest green base and added a wood grain embossed frame that I cut out of soft brown, using a Label Twenty Three, Nestabitities die.  I used different shades of VersaMagic inks to sponge a background for my scene.  The moon is a 1" circle that was sponged around.  The stamps used are as follows:

Stampscapes Lakeside Cabin-147F
Stampscapes Rocks & Reeds- 071E
PSX D-580  Raccoon

All of my images were colored with Copic Markers.  I decided we needed to add a critter playing in the water, so Mr. Raccoon was popped to the front.  There are Stickles on the waterline and ripples, but of course I can not get a good shot this morning.  Around the edges of my frame, I tried to give it a little more rustic feel by adding jute twine and copper brads.

I am sure I will use this for one of the outdoors men in our family.  It is fun to combine stamps and bring your stamping to life.  Please be sure to stop over at Craft A Scene, to check out all of the amazing work by the design team, and the entries so far are gorgeous!  Have a wonderful Sunday.
