The Dead of Night

'The Harvest moon fills the sky
A wicked witch goes flying by...'

Welcome to our second day of previews for the Waltzingmouse Stamps August release. Today's card uses Midnight Feast, a perfect set for ghoulish treats and cards alike!

When I first saw the artwork for this set, I envisioned using the window shape to create a little scene.. the view of Winnie zipping across the sky, outlined against the moon! I stamped the gothic window repeatedly, lining the edges up to create the look of a wall of windows. Yeah, then I cut all those windows out!

The set contains a cluster of stars, excellent for creating a background! I stamped mine in VersaMark Dazzle for some extra shimmer. Winnie was stamped onto Spring Moss and cut out. Everything was given a coat of Perfect Pearls, but you'd have to see them shimmer in person to believe me. The ruffle bit at the bottom is crepe paper! I've got all sorts of fun ideas in mind for that.

Today, Claire, Julia, Lynn, Bonnie, Mona, Jennifer, and Belinda are sharing previews. Be sure to check them out!
