Moonlit Night: Day 23 of 31

Greetings! It's time for Day 23 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today, I am sharing a card that uses a beautiful moon stamp from Altenew, and a fabulous tree stencil from Stampendous.

I started off by stamping the layers of the moon on to my white cardstock. I used Cement VersaColor, London Fog Memento, and Gray Flannel Memento; all from Imagine. I then cut out a mask of the moon and temporarily adhered it directly on top of the stamped moon.

Using Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxides, I inked the entire background with my Ink Blending Tools. Next I took the Bare Trees Stencil and I sprayed it thoroughly with Sheer Shimmer Frost. I felt that it didn't have quite the effect that I wanted because it was light, so I then sprayed the stencil again with Tuxedo Black Fireworks! Spray. I verrrrrry carefully placed the stencil back down on to my cardstock and let it sit for a minute. I really liked the end result this time, as some of the Sheer Shimmer Spritz peeks through in spots, but the overall look of the tress is darker. It especially looks better in front of the moon.

Here you can see how pretty the spays are on top of the Distress Oxides. I adhered the piece on to black cardstock, and added a couple of punched out tombstones from Martha Stewart. That punch is pretty old, so I don't think it is available anymore.
