CAS106 - Moonlight Bird

Ever have one of those days where you have a ton of stuff that you need to be working on and then get sidetracked with a fun challenge that just begs to be played with? It happens to me on occasion and the Bella image that I was water colouring got set aside so that I could play along with yesterday's Clean and Simple challenge over at SCS - CAS106. Normally clean and simple cards are very hard for me to create but when I stumbled upon this challenge, the vision of the card that I wanted to make just popped into my head and away I went with it :D

I have had the Branch with Birdie set for quite some time and it sat on my shelf all lonely like and un-inked *horrors*. I pulled it down, dusted it off and attacked it with black versafine ink to create my silhouettes. I added some sponging with various shades of blue for the sky and then sahara sand and saffron for the moon. The card was meant to be simple, so I added some stitching and a bow to finish it off with a tag sentiment from the Billboardabella Words Only set.

Hope you like my card and now I'm off to finish up the image that I was originally working on...guess you will all just have to see that one for my Bellarific Friday post ;) Toodles for now :D

This is indeed a really cool card. I have a similar stamp set, so I'm going to try this idea. Thanks once again for the inspiration.
