A Serene Scene

The Featured Stamper over on Split Coast was the very artful Mutnik (Cathy)! I CASE'd her birch trees with birds card.
I changed stamps used circles instead of rectangle framings and used striped ribbon instead of striped DP but kept the tree theme and used the black magic technique.
I offset the circles so that the orange piece mirrored the moon outline on the stamp (although this stamp from Rubbernecker is called Serene Sunrise - I made it a night time moon scene!)
The background is embossed with the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder. I stamped the image with white chalk ink - then colored over parts of it with colored pencils (the Black Magic Technique) and added highlight dots with a white gel pen.
