Spooky, spooky- Card 1

I made 2 Halloween cards this morning, both of which used the sponging technique to create the background for a spooky Halloween night.
On this first card - below, which I am going to use in class, I stamped on the background, using the "Halloween Scares" stamp set.

Card 1
A 1 3/4" punched circle was used to mask the moon while the rest of the card front was sponged.  Colours for the background include:  Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie.  The sponging was done in a random manner although I did drag some of the yellow from the moon into the rest of the sky.
After the mask was removed, the moon was sponged with Crushed Curry with a bit of  Pumpkin Pie.
                                                   
The stamping was done using Black Memento ink.  The sentiment is from "Spooky Fun"

To finish the card, I used a black ribbon (retired)  and wrapped it around the left side.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Halloween Scares, Spooky Fun
Inks: Black Memento, Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie
Papers: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 3/4" circle punch, Wink of Stella, 3/8" basic black ribbon (retired), dimensionals.

Tomorrow card #2
