With Shady Lane stamp three images of Faerie Hives attached to branch. Then, stamp mini Barric onto tree branch and Dancing Fairie, both in Rain Forest. Using torn paper and a smoothie with Shady Lane to create mountain range backdrop. Fill in branch with Mini Leaf 5 in Green Oasis and Verdant. Place acetate moon behind crow and faerie and create moon with Shady Lane, then Verdant inks.

Lastly, mix copper Mica Minerals with a tad of water and flick with fan brush around bottom of card.
