Dark, but bright.

Good morning all, 
I hope your Tuesday is going well.
Can you believe that it is September...

As it is the first of September we have a new Lavinia Challenge.
Dark, but light.
Here is my inspiration for you 

And here is how I created it 

I started with Billy Brayer and just added a little colour to the card 

Next I added the stencil and a darker colour.

This was the clean up from the stencil, 
I am really looking forwards to using this. 

Next I edged my card and added the moon. 

I like to add some ink splats onto my backing card too. 

I stamped the beautiful orchids 

And then painted them. 

Finally I added some secret stamping .
I love to do this , it adds such a twist to the design 

It isn’t easy to photograph though. 

I do hope you will enter the challenge .

I’m off now to record lesson 3 for the online classes.
I am so pleased with the response, 
Remember you can watch them as many times as you wish, and whenever it fits in with you. 
This really is such a great way to craft along. 

Enjoy the rest of your day 

Much love and hugs
