Howling 5

 Happy Monday to you all

I do hope you are all well.  A while back I made quite a few backgrounds using Lavinia Dinkles and Brushos and to be honest I forgot about them tucked away in a drawer.  You know when you are looking for something, come across something you have forgotten about and then you forget what you were looking for in the first place - well that was me this morning lol

For this card I have used the following

Lavinia Hotpress watercolour card using Lavinia Paynes grey Dinkles

DL size card, navy and dark grey matt/layering

Lavinia stamps - Dragon tree root, tree branch, Maka, Crow set and River leaves mini

Elements ink - Dark Denim to darken round the top of card  and Graphite for bottom of card

Versafine clair - Nocturne

Water brush to bleach out the colour in random areas of Dragon tree root

Circle mask creating spotlight round the crow

Thank you for visiting me again
