I used a couple of challenges to get me going - The Male Room's trees and leaves theme and the Card Concept's colour palette.
I always find it difficult to define my style of card for the the Card Concept, but I think this week I'm going with classy and elegant because it's got elements of sparkle, regal, sweeping, dramatic, awe & impress.
I started by creating the moon and distant hills using a mask and my inkylicious dusters. Then I stamped all the main elements, using a second stamping to achieve the grey leaves. Finally I added the sparkle onto the leaves and castle windows using a Wink of Stella - sadly this never shows up in photographs.
This is exactly the sort of card my oldest son would love - he's into fantasy and dragons and magic - so I think I'll be popping it away until his birthday.
Stamps: Lavinia Stamps, castle 3, miniature dragon, Spring trees, willow leaves; Kaisercraft, Life sentiments
Inks: Versafine, onyx black; SU, daffodil delight; distress ink, black soot; Versa Magic, cloud white
Embellishments: Kuretake, Wink of Stella clear
Thanks for dropping by today. Look out for the next AAA Cards game on Sunday - a day earlier than usual, but our new release day.
