More Trees and a Super Moon!

Hello to you all from a very wet and windy north west of England! Not too warm either!
Have had a couple of free days since my last post - but went to a meeting yesterday -my train was delayed and the very unhelpful Virgin man said I couldn't transfer to another train and had to wait for the delayed one (which was over an hour late). Got myself agitated as I didn't want everyone else to be hanging about waiting for me - eventually managed to get myself on another (quicker) train with the help of a lovely man from Trans Pennine and arrived only 15 minutes late. Unimpressed with the Virgin employee and have complained about him!
Meeting over, uneventful trip home then into PJ's and the craft space for chill out.

Still have a bit of an inky fest going on - so here's another offering.
This time I used a Penny Black stamp called Christmas Park and embossed in white. Running out of White am using it that much at the moment!

Masked off the 'super' moon (actually it's a £2 coin) and underneath the top of the first white boundary line then out with the ink dusters.
Inks were - Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Milled Lavender.   Wasn't too sure about pink sky but I quite like it.
The 'pathway' was watercoloured with Pumice Stone

I used a 'hill and mountain' acetate mask for the bottom, lightly dusting the Tumbled Glass DI on the little mounds randomly.
Added a wee bit of glamour dust for sparkle.
Was a bit unhappy about the sentiment - opted to use a grey ink instead of black - it's not quite as sharp as I wanted it but overall am not too upset!

Challenges -
CAS Mix Up - Stamp and Mask
Sparkles Monthly - Christmas is Coming
Cardz4Gals- Contemporary Christmas
Inky Chicks- Winter Wonderland
TIOT - Trees

Thanks for visiting me today - have a lovely day whatever you're doing. x


  1. I think this is a beautiful card Viv. LOVE the pink sunset. Personally I like the sentiment colour, because black might've been a bit too harsh!

  10. This is so beautiful Viv!! Love the soft pink sky. Adding the gray walkway colour and a little bit of blue at the top of the snow mounds is genious. I think the gray sentiment works perfectly with the soft colours you've used. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
