Bamboo & moonlight

One layer cards are being featured on the Penny Black blog today so I was more than happy to prepare one.

My one layer cards usually involve masking and this one is no exception. I masked the right hand side and the moon with post-it notes then sponged the colour on lightest to darkest green adding a few bamboo branches in each shade of green. After removing the masks I stamped the bamboo and sentiment in black.

Have a great day and thanks for dropping by.


Stamps: Free Flight , Bamboo branch (PB)
Ink: Memento  New Sprout, Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves & Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)

    The green bamboo images do give the background a flight-like quality! And I have all those Memento greens… may have to get inspired!

    Just beautiful Heather! Leaving the white margin on the right hand side was a lovely idea.

  14. You really encouraged me to have another go with sponging & finally after years of trying to get a decent blend I’ve managed it. I’ve linked my post to yours for I wanted to give you the credit – hope that’s OK & thank you.
