Hoot! Hoot!

I was playing with some sponging today to make this quick Halloween card:

All I did was make a template by punching out a 2" circle out of a scrap of paper...

First, take the piece with the circle punched out and place it over your card where you want the moon to be. Use a sponge dauber to apply color (I just used my ink pads)...I used yellow and orange for the moon:

Remove the template to reveal the moon:

Now, take the circle you punched out and place it over the moon as a mask...I sponged the rest of the card with black and purple:

Remove the mask to reveal a spooooky Halloween sky:

I finished off the card with stamps #710 (Happy Halloween), #A148 (What a Hoot) and #B149 (Spooky Branch). Short and sweet post today...have a good day!!!
