Hungry like the wolf

My ex-husband is a huge Duran Duran fan, so when I got this stamp and this song popped into my head, I knew I had to use it for his birthday card.
I meant to copy a zindorf tutorial and take it home to follow and as usual, I forgot, so had to wing it. Zindorf, I am not, but I think it turned out ok for a "Frenchy Original".
I cut a circle for the moon out of a post it and placed it on white cardstock. I brayered with blue bayou and then not quite navy for the sky. I tore strips of creamy caramel for the hills and inked them up with Chocolate Chip. I inked night of navy around the edges of the sky and at the horizon. I put some shadowy, stripey little clouds over the moon, but they are hard to see in the photo. The wolf was colored with copics. I wanted him to look like the moonlight was reflecting off his fur. I did his scruff with milky white and his body in cool grey 3, shaded with cool grey 5 then blended the whole thing with milky white, which made it look more like fur (well, at least to me!). I mounted it on really rust, basic grey archaic, black and then finally on a grey bazzill card base.

Bravo for your nod to The Double D. If John Taylor had asked me to marry him before my husband did, I would be called Mrs. Talor in stead of Mrs. Côté! Love the card!
