Witching Hour

My apologies for being absent. My cardmaking Mojo went walkabout. On a positive side, I have finished my 2009 scrapbooks. Yes books - it took 2 to fit it all in. I also managed to clean my craft area trying to find said Mojo. It's amazing what you can find in little cubbies.

My card was an attempt at Paper Jewel's challenge to create a night scene. Brayering is not a technique that I have accomplished yet. Next time I will stick to sponging. On the other hand, this is something very new for my and I'm quite happy for a first attempt. The sky is brayered with Ballet Blue, and Brocade Blue. I should have taken some of the excess off first. The moon was made by masking off the paper with a post-it note. I then used plastic wrap to dab over top to soften the brayering lines and make the sky more misty.

The witch from Inkadinkadoo is stamped with tuxedo Black Memento and the trees from Flourishes, is stamped with Brown Momento. The cardstock is then mounted on SU Pumpkin Pie and Not Quite Navy.
