Spooky sky


I saw a picture of a sky that looked similar to this, so I set out to recreate it with ink!  I started with brayering Crushed Curry in the upper corner on Glossy White cardstock.  Then I brayered Rich Razzleberry from the other corner.  I added "clouds" with my Sponge Dauber and Rich Razzleberry ink.

The tree is from Branch Out (still available on the Dormant List) and stamped with Basic Black.  I used the 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 circle punches to make the moon from Crushed Curry cardstock and inked up the edges with Rich Razzleberry.  I added a bat punched with the 1 1/4 square punch from Day & Night Designer Paper…did an origami fold and added white eyes with the White Gel Pen.

The greeting is from the hostess set, Holiday Best, and stamped with Black Craft ink on Crushed Curry.  I punched it with the Wide Oval punch and placed it in the lower right corner.

So…it looks pretty similar.  I’d like to add ribbon or something, but nothing looks right.  I’ll leave it the way it is!

Thanks for stopping by!

I absolutely love your card. The sky is perfect. I’ve been playing with the chalks to achieve a similar effect. Yours is so bright. It really does look like an autumn sky. Thanks for sharing.
