Dancing in the Moonlight

I did this background with various spray inks on watercolor paper, there are a couple of over stamp marks but I like the background so decided to post anyway.  I'm not too sure about this one, maybe it'll grow on me.

Flying Butterflies

This was done with a stencil as well, I think it's meant for cutting but embosses well.  I inked the circle with Distress inks, butterflies were stamped on acetate with Stazon.

Back Grounds

I did the backgrounds for these 3 with my Pan Pastels, upper card is a hero arts stamp, bottom is a brass stencil I've had for ages, bottom are StampScapes.

Silver Fairy

 I just love this stamp from Wee Stamps called Silver Fairy, having fun just checking out the different colors on her.

Copper Child

 I came across this little piece of copper I did years ago when it was the popular technique.  You can see I stamped, then punched holes around the image, painted with acrylics. I'm kind of amazed it didn't chip or anything.
