' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: January blues

January blues

If you were not cold enough already with winter being in full swing in the Northern hemisphere, here's a card with icy colours.

Stamps: Stampscapes: Nature Sheet No 9; Lavinia: Mia, Fairy Path; Stamplorations: Trendy Birds 2
I used a round Mixed Media plate, my new item (yippee!!!), to apply inks and stamp the background trees. I made the moon with a circle stencil and white acrylic paint. 
The faerie, path and sentiment was stamped directly on the card.

It looks fairly simple but, believe me, I took me ages to get the position right!

Thanks for coming by,

[1] This card is 100% paper free (well Patterned paper!)
