Autumn! Yea! My favorite time! (and it doesn't happen in southern Arizona). I will be making my way back to Maryland later this month- then I'll see Fall start. Can't wait to see Mom and the gang either!
My card for AAA CAS Card Challenges this week is one featuring the MOON. It gave me my first opportunity for a Halloween card. I saved a Halloween image a few years back. These witches were dancing at the bottom of a hill with another dancing at the top with a scary house and tree. All the background was golds and oranges, stars and swirls. I worked with the image nearly an hour, removing oranges and other original elements until I isolated the witches and cats. I printed the witches in a 3.75 X 5 panel. Then the watercolor fun began. I punched out a moon shape and used the positive and negative pieces to create the yellow moon and night sky. My paints started with Derwent Inktense and finished up with Salty Ocean and Preserved Grapes distress stains (love them!) My colored panels are from Martha Stewart (old stuff).
I think I'll send this one to my group of 4 grandsons. (We have 6 from 3 households-but 4 at one house, whew!).
Try this MOON SKETCH CHALLENGE! There's a prize this week too. Visit AAA Cards and play along.
