Faraway Moon

ching-chou kuiks Faraway Moon

I have so much to tell you about this card, but all the words keep getting jumbled in my head! The sketch it was based on is from CLP Sketch Challenge # 13. Chelsea has beautiful artwork on her blog and awesome sketch challenges too! The image is Faraway Moon by chingchou kuik for Sweet Pea Stamps. I love her Fantasy Art Collection ~ all of the stamps are gorgeous!

The shimmer on the image background is from the awesome metallic watercolors my friend Susanna gave me... they are amazing... if I can figure out the name of them I will post it later. The shimmer on the moon and star is from Smooch Moonlight paint and the decorative mat behind the image is painted with Creative Inspirations Tanzanite paint. All the sparkle came from SCACD. :)

Now that I got all of the details out of the way I am feeling a lot better! Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Smiles ~ Brandi

WHat an amazing image. I just love the way you colored her.. This is really beautiful.. Not an easy image to color. I really love your blog too. I want my pictures large like that but when I bring them in from flickr they are blurry...Just wondering if your blog is a 3 column layout.. It looks really nice...
