Spooky Skyline...

Hello friends!
I wanted to make a fun spooky skyline card...
I have been seeing so many of these really fun spooky looking night skies this year, so I thought it would be fun to try one out for myself!

I embossed the tree border stamp with black detail embossing powder and then masked off above the tree line area to sponge the grass in.  I then sponged a punched circle and then embossed over it with clear embossing powder to create the moon.  Then I masked the grass portion of the card and finished sponging the colors for the sky.  Since I embossed the moon, I was able to go right over top of it because the embossed area resists inks.  I just added a few stars with my white signo gel pen.

I die cut some letters and sponged those with some green inks and then went over the letters with glitter and glossy accents.  I punched a couple of circles from black card stock to make eyes for the "o"s in the "boo!" and then attached some gold star sequins to the sky as well.  I covered the trees and top parts of the grass with glitter as if the moon was making them sparkle!

I hope this looks spooky enough for a Halloween night!!
Thanks so much for stopping in today!
