Autumn silhouette scene

This card is for the Hero Arts September challenge (autumn theme). I wanted to try doing a scene with a bigger silhouette image. The scene is done on glossy cardstock and brayered with dye inks.

First, the glossy cardstock was brayered with Peach Bellini, then the moon was masked and the sky was brayered with inks in the following order: Peach Bellini, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, always leaving a bit of the previous colour showing. The hills were masked with torn paper and brayered with the following inks: Crushed Olive, Bamboo Leaves, Peeled Paint, Pesto, Forest Moss. The trees were stamped with Archival Coffee ink using first to third generation stamping. I used the stem of a flower stamp for the strands of grass. I added just a bit of dry brushed white pigment ink around the moon and highligts with a white and an orange gel pen.

Thanks so much for looking!
