I hope you are all ready for Halloween? Iv'e made a spooky card for the mid month Inspiration Post on the Imagination-craftschallenges blog.
To make this card I cut out a circle to use as a stencil for the moon then I stippled white acrylic paint through the stencil onto a black card which I had coloured with blue chalk to colour the background sky. I then added white chalk all around the edge of the moon and faded it with a blender. I added random lines drawn across the moon made with a water pen and brushed Irridescent Mica Powder over the marks to give a cloudy misty moonlight effect. I used blue and white powders. I then put some silver sparkle Medium onto my finger and gently and thinly spread it over the whole sky to create the look of stars.
I added green mica powder to sparkle gel and spread this onto the bottom of the card to create the grass. I then mixed orange mica powder to sparkle gel and stenciled the plain pumpkin from the Pumpkin stencil. I made a few marks to give the pumpkin a round look and when dry added the pumpkin face using Black Stars Sparkle Medium.
The grass was made using a palette knife which I scratched into the wet Sparkle Gel for effect. To finish I added a black cat using Black Stars Sparkle Medium and gave him two blue adhesive gem eyes .
You can mix mica powders with Sparkle Medium to give colour or even change the colour. Experiment and have fun.
