Spooktacular Halloween Card with Journey Gel Press

I'm still finding the Skeletons Dance Stamp Set and Skeletons Dance Die Set simply irresistible and can't seem to stop creating with it lately.  I guess I'll have to give it up soon, but I'm hanging onto it for just a bit longer.

For today's card share, I have a completely different take on it than last week. For this project I  wanted to make a spooky looking sky as my background, with a playful twist!  Bright and colorful is my go-to style, so I wanted to brighten "spooky" and see how I could create a night sky using purple tones instead of the usual grey and black tones. I'm completely in love with the result!

Making your own is easy, peasy with the Journey Gel Press!

1. Drop several drops of Grape Fusion True Color Fusion Re-inker onto Journey Gel Press.
2. Add 2 drops of Banana Cream True Color Fusion Re-inker onto Journey Gel Press.
3. Add 3 drops of Fusion Blender.
4. Brayer together. (If you want a lighter tone at this point add another drop of Banana Cream)
5. Flick with Sparkle Silk.
6. Pull print onto Whip Cream cardstock.
7. Flick with Silver Silk.
8. Trim print to size desired.

To draw more focus to your spooky sky, try trimming a vellum overlay with a die-cut window to help obscure the view of a portion of it. You will still be able to see a subtle pattern of it peeking through behind the vellum - this allows the other elements of your project like the adorable skeleton and your sentiment to stand out!
