Challenge #91
Include an Animal

This fortnights challenge 'Include an Animal' has been chosen by Chriss.

For my DT creation I have used a stamp that I have had for a long time, totally love and yet never used until now :)   A fair bit of masking going on as the wolf was stamped first, I then restamped him on a bit of paper to make my mask, also created a mask for the moon and an inverse mask for the moon which was used twice during the card making.  So with the wolf stamped and masked I then used the inverse moon mask to colour the moon with Distress Inks.  Next with the wolf still masked I changed the inverse moon mask for the regular one and created the background again with Distress Inks. Normally I make much darker background but this one I really tried to keep light.  Time to remove all the mask and a quick bit of loose colouring with Copics for the wolf.  Next I decided to stamp a few trees so remasked the wolf and used some tree stamps from the Creative Stampers magazines sets I collect. Finally I remasked the wolf yet a gain and also used the inverse moon mask so I could spray with gold glitter spray varnish, I then removed the inverse moon mask and gave another coat of the glitter spray.   From the same Creative Stampers set I used the Be strong sentiment, stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder and attached with raised glue dots. A lovely relaxing card to make :)
