Happy Day Wetlands - The Friday Mashup #121

What happened to summer?  I know we had the heat wave in the middle of July, but since then the weather has been a bit on the cool side.  There is somehow a feel of fall in the air and its early August.  The weather forecasters do not see another heat wave in the foreseeable future!  However, it is still nice enough to play and work outdoors.
I hope you have some wonderful plans for this long weekend.  I'm busy getting ready to fly to Vancouver the middle of the week, so after Tuesday there will be no blog posts until I get back on the 21st.

This card is for the challenge with the Friday Mashup here is to create a card using polka dots, using the word "happy" on it.
The card I made was a version of a card I saw on Pinterest.




Technique:
I punched a 1 3/4" circle to make a mask for the moon, and a piece of photocopy paper as a mask for the sky line.
The sky was made using Midnight Muse and finger daubers.  Some Strawberry Slush was applied around the moon.
After removing the masks, the pond and grass area were coloured using finger daubers - Coastal Cabana for the pond and Pear Pizzazz for the grass.  The reflection of the moon on the water was not coloured.
All images were stamped as shown.  The Canada Goose was painted with Summer Starfruit and an aqua painter.
A close up shows the polka dot paper used.
