Bewitched Moonlight (by Shirley)

Hello everyone and welcome to September.    Time sure flies by when we are having fun!

I love Autumn and Halloween is a fun part of it.  I love to see how some people go all out and decorate their homes to celebrate.  I like to have pumpkins out with our tall grasses to add a touch of Autumn to our front patio.

I've been working with the new Bewitched Moonlight set which is great to create spooky scenes for Halloween cards, tags and more.       

For the above card, I started with watercolour paper and sprayed Purple & Orange Dylusions Inks.  I spritzed water over top and was careful not to blend the colours as these two will turn into muddy brown together.  I blotted with a paper towel roll. 

When dry, I stamped the images from Bewitched Moonlight with black Stazon Ink.   I also stamped the Flourish Tree from Fantasy Woodland to the left of the mushroom and around the top edges.    Using a black Micron Pigment pen I drew a little on the bottom of the tree and added a few little mushrooms to blend the images together.    

Using a piece of cardstock with a circle cut out and placed over the witch, I carefully spritzed a little water, then blotted the ink off to create the moon.    Dylusions inks are water soluble, so it's easy to remove the ink.   I added holograph glitter to highlight the moon.

I have another design using the same stamp set:

I started again with a piece of watercolour paper and sprayed Midnight, Teal and White Linen Dylusions Inks.  I spritzed a little water over top, let the colours blend and blotted with a paper towel roll.   When dry, I used two stencils TCW Cell Theory (at the bottom)  and TCW Star Fall (at the top) with Distress Inks to create a little more pattern on the background.  Next I embossed the images with black powder.  I created a moon again using cardstock with a circle cut out and distress inks.

I hope you have enjoyed these 'spooky' designs.    Please come back often to see what my talented teammates are posting.     Glenda is giving away some new stamp sets !  -  all you need to do for a chance to win is leave a comment here.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,


  1. Wow, they are gorgeous! Fab colours & I love the moon & stamping.

  2. Striking to see what a different effect you've created by using two different colour ways. I particularly like the way you have added texture & variation with the stencils. In the blue sample the effect of the moon is spectacular as it really looks like a haze through which the witch is flying.

  3. these really stood out and the way you've done the moons look so ethereal, brilliant stamping and techniques
