Let's get spooky


A few days ago I received a beautiful Halloween card made by my sweet crafty friend Tina. You can take a look at it here  And she sent also some cute critters, such adorable bunnies in Halloween costumes, bats and ghosts.

I had to make a card and it had to be a night scene with a big moon, because I want the bunny in the bat costume flying across the sky. For the background I used my watercolor pans and created a nightsky with those colorful aurora borealis (or northern lights). I used lots of water and let the colors flow and mix with each other. I let it dry thouroughly - helped a little bit with a heat gun, because I am an impatient crafter *lol - then I spritzed it with silver watercolor paint.


The moon is made with distress inks. I needed a real pale yellow and light grey shadows around the edges. Distress Inks worked great, but I used a very light hand when blending. Then I spitzed on some violet watercolor too. 



I searched for a cute sentiment to match the scene and stamped it with one of my alphabet stamps sets and wrote a part myself (not quited satisfied with that part).
