Muhwah ah ah ah ah... [insert creepy background music here]

Halloweenie time again! I had soooooooo much fun creating the Leggy Witch card, that I tried another brayer / sponging project. This creepy little landscape uses only two different stamp sets, but several ink colors!!

I used a torn edge of paper to create the horizon line. I taped down that paper & then a punched circle over the moon to mask. I brayered Reflection Blue, then Prussian Blue, and finally Violette to create the sky. I removed the masks and brayered Chartrueuse over the grass area. I went back and sponged Landscape for more depth. I then used the reverse of the circle punched paper and sponged Sunflower & Raw Siena for the moon.

Using Landscape, Jardin Moss, Noir, and Violette inks, I stamped various images from Fresh Air Favorites at bottom and around right edge to create foliage. I used Graphite Black Brilliance and stamped a tree from Love and Laughter closest to the moon and then stamped another one, without re-inking, next to it. I stamped a third after re-inking and stamping off lightly.
To finish the scene, I used Fantastix and Landscape to shade the horizon and grass area around tree trunks. I sponged Jardin Moss & Violette around edges at grass area, and Noir around sky & moon.
I then matted it on TAC's Olive cardstock after running around the edge with a Cutter Bee Bug & distressing the edges. I used the dark navy from the Bazzill Monochromatic Blue cardstock pack for the card base.

Done!
What do you think? Me likey!!
