The card below uses the Impression Obsession Shakespeare quote. I decided I had to have that stamp as soon as I saw it.
sentiment - Impression Obsession
three alley cats - Custer's Last Stamp
bat background - Hero Artstree branch with bats - Penny Black (Hoot of a Time)
Rest In Peace gravestone with scary hand - Stamp Oasis (Rubbernecker stamps)
The finished card is 5" x 7". The moon was made using a punched 1 3/4" circle mask while sponging the background with Stampin' Up! Going Gray and Memento Gray Flannel. The mask was then removed and the moon and parts of the background especially around the moon were sponged with orange and yellow Ranger Distress and Memento inks. The bats were stamped in gray ink as well as the gravestone. One of the hills was sponged in gray also using a sticky note for a mask. The rest was stamped and sponged with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.
The way the background is sponged makes it look a bit like there is an eerie fog or mist in the night air.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
