Joyous Moon ATC
I made this ATC for the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge last week, but I forgot to post about it and missed the deadline to link up. But I think it's really pretty so I'm going to share it anyway.
I started with watercolour card and painted stripes of blue - from light blue to blue black - across the card with acrylic paint. When that had dried, I used a circle die as a stencil and used white paint to make the moon. I used a stencil brush and was quite liberal with the paint. It gave a nice textured surface which I thought represented the moon quite well. When dry, I inked a stamp from the Sizzix Winter Charms collection with silver ink and stamped over the moon. The text is an extract from the dictionary definition of joy. Finally I stamped the grassy silhouette along the bottom.
