Moonlight Meadow

Happy Wednesday folks!

How’s your week going?  I’m enjoying a lovely break with the family down in the picturesque town of Bourton-on-the-Water, in the Cotswolds.  Thankfully, we had a nice smooth ferry crossing last week and the weather’s been beautiful ever since …… let’s hope it lasts!

Just because I’m away on holiday though, doesn’t mean  I’m neglecting  my Design Team duties ………. I’ve still got a little something to share with you today using the fabulous IndigoBlu stamps


I’ve been scene building again, this time using some of the silhouette images from  Wild Meadow,  and Nature I  and also adding in the lovely sentiment from Poppy Meadow

I started out by stamping the sentiment onto the bottom of a piece of white cardstock, approx. 7.5 inches square.  This was then mat onto a piece of purple card and attached to the front of an 8×8 cardblank.


On a seperate piece of white card I used Distress Inks to colour the background …….. starting at the bottom with Tumbled Glass then moving up the card using Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord, blending each of the colours together.  Before I started applying the ink I placed a punched circle onto the card to create the ‘moon’


Once I was happy with the colours, using a black Versafine ink I added in the moonlight scene …….. the pretty Wild Meadow Border across the bottom of the piece of card, and then added in the delicate dandelion heads from the same stamp set.


The tree across the moon is from Nature I …….


This was then attached to the front of the card, above the sentiment, and I finished off by adding in some highlights using a white gel pen …..


For the inside, I kept things very clean and simple, using just one of the images


Hope you like it.

Don’t forget our current challenge ends soon …… you’ve got just a few days left to get your MONOCHROMATIC entries in, before our next winner is chosen and we launch a brand new theme for you to play along with.

Well that’s it from me, from the garden of our little ‘home from home’ ……  we’ve got a few days left before it’s time to pack and head off back to the Isle of Man, for a little while!

Thanks for popping by …. enjoy the rest of your week.

Cheerio until next time

  5. This is absolutely gorgeous!. I’ve so often wondered how these are done., I also had never noticed before that there was a blog on here before so I will now be following regularly. I hope you had a wonderful holiday down south.
    I love the colours & I’m sure I have all the stamps so I shall be having ago as soon as my Physio has got my hand out of spasm on Monday
    1 question please Linda, for this card what size moon did you punch out – I’ve only got a 1″ Punch or SB Die Circles
    Thank you, Dawn

    • Hi Dawn,
      Thanks for your lovely comments and I’m so glad you’ve found the blog.
      In answer to your question ….. the moon on this particular card was done using a 1.5 inch punch, I’m sure that one of your SB dies will be this size or very near to.
      Hope everything goes well with the physio on Monday ….. happy stamping!
