Flowers in the Moonlight

For this card I sponged some Summer Starfruit ink through the middle of the panel first and then brayered Primrose ink on the bottom half. I then added Island Indigo ink around the edges toward the middle, applying very lightly through the middle and finished with Midnight Muse.
 Each time I use my brayer on Glossy CS, I'm amazed at the different outcome. Each color added with different amounts of pressure on the brayer offers a different look each time! For these cards I used very light pressure on the brayer but rolled over the portion of CS as many times as it took to get a smooth, no line application. As in the other two cards, bleach painted around the flowers to highlight and dotted around the moon with a toothpick for stars!
I also used the punched out reverse circle mask to sponge some yellow where the shadow of the full moon would be.
