Moonlit branch

Although this stamp is from one of Penny Black’s new Halloween sets I thought the delicate branches were too pretty to dedicate only to spooky scenes. I avoided inking the three bats and created a moonlit branch instead. To achieve the moonlit edge on the branches I used the same technique I have mentioned before when creating snow laden trees and branches. I stamp the branch twice, once in versamark and then ever so slightly lower in black, then emboss it all in clear  before sponging.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have a great week.

    I love that colour combination for the sky, and how your double stamping technique works just as well for moonlight as it does for snow. Fabulous card.

    Wonderful card! I like the new tree stamp and the stamping technique makes for a great look. Since I’m a fairly new follower, I had not read about this technique before. I’m glad to know of it. I will definitely be trying it. 🙂

    I do like when a seasonal stamp can be multi-purposed! This is beautiful, a not-at-all scary scene. 🙂
