Tutorial ~ Creating a Spooky Sky ~ Masking

Hello friends,

Today I come to you sharing a fun step by step tutorial sharing simple masking. This Halloween project is the “Wrap Up” to my 2 weeks full of fun Halloween projects!! Make sure to check back over the last two weeks to see all the tips, techniques, tutorials AND of course the fun projects.

Now to create this spooky card simply follow these directions:

I have used 2 1″ strips of masking paper but Post it also makes a post it note that is 100% sticky. Check for it on Amazon. I actually use that post it paper for the moon mask shown below.

Designers Tip: Cover your card completely…I got a tiny bit of ink along the top of the card because I left that area uncovered.

Sponging is so much fun!!!!

This isn’t seen in the photo but you want to remove the moon mask and sponge the moon before you remove the top and bottom pieces. Allow for the Crushed Curry ink to sponge into the purple, it gives a nice glow of the moon.

ready to see the final project??? Not yet!

This is a small tip… Using the Cauldron Bubble Bundle get that spider web die out and cut one from basic black card stock then trim it down to match your sponged sky…. cool huh???

I’ve made you wait long enough….. Here is the final project! Didn’t it turn out really spooky?

For the bats I cut punched them out twice…first in Basic Black and second in Crushed Curry. Adding the Crushed Curry as a outline really made the bats pop off the paper. I also used Dimensionals to help that even more. Can’t have a project without them!!!
