Frightful Night - Brayered Sky


Here is a card using Taylored Expressions' new set Frightful Night set. For those of you who read my blog on a regular basis, you know I love making scenes (not IRL but on cards!!) so one of first things I wanted to make with this set for Halloween was a scene using as many of the images in the set I could (7 out of 13) I could have used more but didn't want the card to look too busy!! Once I stamped a few images (house, trees, clouds & moon) I used a VersaMarker on the trees, clouds & moon & heat embossed clear embossing powder over them.  Then, I used various shades of blue to brayer on the sky, starting with the lightest shade in the middle and working out with darker shades) sorry I already forgot which colors I used since I made this card a few weeks ago!  Then, I stamped the house separately & popped it up for dimension, along with the ghost & gravestone.  The house & gravestone were colored with copic markers.  Pin It
