This is one of my favorite Halloween cards made with the retired set, Hauntingly Halloween. It is not my original design but I cannot remember whose work I copied so I can give proper credit. If you know, or if it is yours, please let me know. Begin by punching a circle for the moon out of scrap card stock. Lay the scrap of card stock with the hole from your punch on a piece of white card stock. Sponge So Saffron ink inside to create the moon. When the ink is dry, use a temporary adhesive, such as Dotto, to stick the punched circle over the sponged moon. Sponge on ink on for the sky beginning near the moon and working toward the edge of the paper. I used Baja Breeze, Night of Navy, and a tiny bit of Basic Black. Using Basic Black and Whisper White ink, stamp the trees from Lovely as a Tree set along the bottom of the paper. Remove the circle, stamp and color the image. A white gel pen was used for coloring the stars and to make the streaks. Mat on So Saffron card stock and an Elegant Eggplant card base.
