Good evening folks.
Spring sunshine appears to have disappeared and been replaced by grey skies and chilly breezes. So much for the supposed meteorological beginning of spring!
My bloggy friend Cornelia (Stempel Spass) has her first post as DT @ MUSE at Christmas Visions this week. She made a stunningly beautiful, inked card to inspire us, so it would be churlish not to take part, especially as I won their guess the new DT member draw!
So here is my card
inspired by this wonderful creation.
Mine is more English winter evening than Arabian nights as I don't have anything like the fun die cut she used. I built up my scene using three layers of MB Country Landscape in three shades of black. I once heard a friend in the textile dye trade remark that there were nearly 400 shades of black, when I complained about black being difficult to match up! Anyway the different tones here give a little bit of depth to my scene.
I left the sun out of my interpretation and added a warm glow to the windows in the houses. The star was drawn freehand over my inked panel with a white gel pen as were the tiny stars and the star light on the side of the trees and roofs. My inked panel,Chipped Sapphire, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves DI, is the base card and the top panel was stamped with the same greeting and finally popped up on pads over the top.
I'm joining in over at-
