Spooky Sponging at Club

So today I'm sharing the card we made at club using the background sponging technique.  It worked so well for this spooky sunset that silhouetted our houses.  We went from gray to yellow to orange to rust and back to gray.

We used a post it note with a circle punched out to make the moon - first laying down the circle and sponging around it with the gray - then lifting it and putting the post-it with the circle punched out back down on the card to sponge the yellow for the moon.  Finished with a little gray over it to look cloudy and spooky.
The houses were cut out on the Big Shot with the Homemade Holiday Framelits - just cut out of black without stamping to get the silhouette look.  Then added the tree, the bats and the ghost to give it all those little Halloween touches. 
Finally added the "Happy Halloween" banner and we were done. Hope you liked it - see you soon! ~Maureen
