'Moonlight and Honesty' - for Sheena Douglass

For those that are enjoying the sneaky peaks going round at the moment, I am going to add to the enjoyment by posting another project I did for the new Sheena Douglass stamp launch next week. Well, on Thursday to be exact on Create & Craft TV (go back to my earlier blog HERE to get more info about which channels you can watch on).

This is a project which features the lovely lady from the Honesty stamp plate as well as possibly my favourite stamp, the toadstools. Of course I am very fickle and so when you come back tomorrow for another sneaky peak I will probably tell you that my favourite stamp is a completely different one.

I had an oval of black card, waste (as if a crafter ever has waste) from a photo mount, which was just the right size for Lady Honesty. It 'needed' to be used. I stamped and embossed her with Honey Gold embossing powder and then coloured her with Golden Nugget H2O. The moon was masked off before a wash of Bolivian Blue H2O for the night sky was painted. I then used a white water colour pencil to create the moon and the stars. The ground was painted using Celedon H2O. The toadstools were painted with Spiced Pumpkin H2O and then dotted with the white water colour pencil.

The background card has the corners decorated with what I am calling the briar rose element from the Honesty plate. It was stamped and embossed with the Honey Gold embossing powder. I love the way the same product looks so different depending on the card stock. The stamp is perfect for corners but watch out for some other ideas about using in a different way. 

If I were to make this again I would almost certainly have the dress 'tail' over the edge of the oval. I think it would balance the piece better with the toadstools. I blame this on the fact that I wanted to use the oval. :-)

Well, I hope you like this project? Do come back again to more samples.
