Eerie Night

 This background was made using a hard brayer to pull the colors down or up and blending them. You can also use a blending brush or a sponge. The brush and the sponge will give you a slightly different look, but you can still achieve that "eeriness". Thoughts?

   Spooky Cat
   Halloween Scares

   Blackberry Bliss A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Tangelo Twist Scraps

   Archival Basic Black
   Blackberry Bliss
   Tangelo Twist
   Daffodil Delight

   Die Cutting

   Layering Circles Framelits Dies

First, I added Tangelo Twist ink using my brayer. I brought the color down three-quarters of the way.

Next, I applied Blackberry Bliss and brought the color down half-way. 

I then flipped my panel and applied Daffodil Delight to the bottom of the panel.

I then stamped my scene using Archival Basic Black. 

I die cut a Tangelo Twist circle using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I adhered it to the top-right of the card and then cut the top off to make it flush against the panel. I stamped my greeting on this circle.

I then adhered this panel onto the Whisper White panel and then onto the card front. The other Whisper White panel was adhered to the inside of the card.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. I have to be careful with the brayer. Sometimes I forget to check for cracks in my surface that the brayer may pick up. Oops. Thanks for stopping by here and taking the time to comment.
