Craft A Scene - By The Silvery Moon - Week 1

October has snuck up on me while I was crafting. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. Anyway as it's the beginning of a new month, it's time for another new challenge over on the Craft A Scene blog. This month we're asking for your entries to have moonlight in it. For my card this week I've used this wonderful new stamp from Visible Image (part of a collection of stamps celebrating The Wizard Of Oz). This also fell just right for my nieces birthday which is today, and she is a massive fan of the musical Wicked, which is why the witch is coloured green. I also used Stampscape stamps for the trees in the background. First I stamped the witch onto stamping card and the onto some copier paper and masked her. Next I stamped the trees over the top and masked these. I cut a circle with a large circle punch and place onto the card to make the moon. This then allowed me to get my brushes out for the background colours, which were different shades of blues starting with the lightest to the darkest in distress inks and then a couple of different greens, again in distress inks. After removing all of the masks I then coloured the witch with spectrum noir pens. The sentiment was from the same set as the witch. I do hope that you can find the time to pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the wonderful cards the DT has made for your inspiration this week.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
