In the Bright Moonlight with Purple Onion Designs

Two friends in the woods with nothing but their lanterns and the glow of the moon.  Does that sound like the start of a bad scary movie?  On the contrary, it's a lovely moonlight stroll for this owl his hedgehog friend.  I wonder where they're off to?

I placed a circle mask onto a piece of Bristol smooth paper.  I inked around it with Distress Oxides and regular Distress ink, leaving some white showing around the mask.  Once I took the mask off, it really looked like it glowed!

These two and the birch trees background were stamped, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut all as one piece, and then added to the panel with foam tape.

Purple Onion Designs Stamps:  Egg Nog, Forrest, Birch Tree Background
Ink: Distress Oxides: Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, regular Distress Ink: Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot

Thanks for coming over to visit!
May the Lord bless you today!


  1. Sweet little friends. I think the owl is introducing the hedge hog to the night in the woods. Owl is used to it but maybe the hedge hog is not.
