Favourite Stamps at Stamping Sensations

Good Morning and Happy New Year! As it is the first Sunday of the month, it is time for our January challenge at Stamping Sensations. This month we have a lovely theme....
****Use your Favourite Stamps****
For my card this month I used stamps and stencils from Inkylicious and a little white gel pen and liquid pearls. My favourite stamps are the inkylicious moon and tree, but I do reach for the splatter stamp and the willow  twigs on a regular basis too!
  The background was created using ink dusters, sponges and inks.  I used memento lulu lavender to stamp the moon and to blend the paler to darker inks. Adirondack mountain rose and peach bellini made the moon shine section of sky. Dusty concord, chipped sapphire and black soot Distress inks formed the darker sky and the hills, using a mountain valley stencil.  

Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image which reflects the theme as the focal element of your artwork , this means:
Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest
Our prize this month is from  our lovely sponsors, Tattered Lace.  Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous creations from my talented team mates and more details of that prize! Thanks for looking!

A beautiful card with a very nice sentiment too. A lovely effect with the white dots on the willow and tree.

A really atmospheric scene Sally and looks good with the shaped mat, I had an inkling there would be trees involved. But I threw a curve ball this time didn't I.

A belated Happy New Year.

A beautiful tree Sally and you have made a gorgeous scene around it and a wonderful large moon which really does illuminate the scene with your shadows and highlights, and a great sentiment and splatter background too. x
