Moonlight Swim

 My Blog Candy Post is HERE thru 6/23 at 10PM CST

The humidity here in the Midwest has us thinking of staying cool!
 I printed out a digi called Moonlight Swim by McMahon Five Designs. I colored it in with Subtle colors of Copic markers. I cut out the image with a Spellbinders die and added 'Wisped Frames' to highlight the image.  Can you see the swirly Vintage Silver Lustre cardstock the paper is printed on?  I got it in a package with 5 different designs and each design comes in text weight and cardstock weight.  My photo's do not do the beautiful card stock justice! 
  I used a SU DSP for the frame behind the image.  I mounted that on Aqua cardstock  after I 'doublebugged' it (a Technique Junkies Technique)  and highlighted the paisley swirls with Soft Sky ink. I added a row of Spellbinders Parisian Accents in the SU DSP on the bottom.

Challenges:

Wow, that paper is fabulous looking (wish I had had some for a project I did this weekend - I wanted a mirror.) Love that image too and the background looks fabulous with it.

Your papers and the double-bugging really add a feeling of luxury to this card. You are so good with monochromatic!
