Spooky Sky Halloween Card

The creepy tree in this card was just begging for a spooky sky. I couldn't resist trying to make a few ominous looking clouds and moon by doing some sponging. I started with a white piece of cardstock and stamped the tree with StazOn Jet Black, then I sponged on Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, and Summer Starfruit to create the scene. I used punched pieces as masks to create the sky (punches used were various size circle scallops and the pansy punch). The layout for this Spooky Sky Halloween Card is from Freshly Made Sketches. I love the clean lines of this sketch created by Narelle Farrugia. The designer paper is from the Witches' Brew collection by Stampin' Up! and I used the Chevron embossing folder and then sanded the Black Magic cardstock by Core'dinations. I used deckle scissors by Fiskars for the decorative edge on the black patterned paper. It adds a little interest but still allows for a clean look paired with the white paper. Thanks for stopping by and have a great night and pleasant tomorrow!
