Spooky Halloween Sky

Hello everyone & Welcome to the new followers!  Thank you to everyone for your interest in my blog and designs, I appreciate it very much:)

I have another Halloween Design using the wonderful new set - Bewitched Moonlight by Chocolate Baroque.     I experimented with using Acrylic paints in the background.


I started with red, orange & cream Acrylic Paints on my craft mat.  I spritzed with water and dragged my sheet through.  When dry, I stamped the fence with the tree image & sentiment from Bewitched Moonlight and the spider web looking fragment from Lace Fragments with black Stazon Ink.   I also embossed the fragment with Wow-Glamor Green powder (which has glitter and is much more vibrant in 'real').  I coloured the image a little with Inktense Pencils.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day,
Shirley

Goodness this is striking - the lace fragment looks splendid & I love the way you used the sparkly green for some it & echoed the little grassy patches of your stamped scenery. The matting is super with the various layers so interestingly framing the whole.

Hi, Shirley! I don't know why but this reminds me of Ichabod Crane and Sleepy Hallow just as the sun is setting. Love the gold embossing and hint of green on the knoll. Beautiful card in every way, Shirley. hugs, de

Love the glow of the reds & golds in your background, and the delicate frame using the lace fragments. That is some embossing powder on that framing too...stunning. Great Halloween card, very artistic. TFS such a beauty of a card.
