Another Jacksonbelle sketch challenge

Here is another card I made for the Jacksonbelle sketch challenge contest. This time I followed sketch #3. When I started this card I had the birds stamped on white cardstock, used different dp and had a whole different color scheme completely. I actually had a complete card put together but after over an hour of putzing around with it, it just didn't look right so I pulled it apart and saved....the moon. Yep, that is the only thing I salvaged from the first card. I carefully cut the moon off of the first card and started new. I'm so glad I did because...I LOVE how this card turned out. For this card I stamped the birds with Brilliance Graphite Black ink on bashful blue cardstock. Once the ink dried, I painted over the entire piece with Silver Bells Shimmerz paint and then I sponged Night of Navy ink over that. I love the spooky look it gives! After that, I glued on the shimmery moon that I salvaged from the first card. I couldn't resist adding the cute MS fence too. Now to try and find time to stamp something for sketch challenge #2.
Supplies used: Stamps from Inkadinkado and Studio G, CS and DP from SU, Shimmerz paint - silver bells and bees wax, MS fence punch, MM bat brads, prismacolor marker.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a great day!

What an incredible card! I love how the colors come together to create a card that looks as though it is nighttime. You have a knack for pulling it all together. It is so beautifully created!
