Bad Moon Rising

Hiya folks!

It's a soggy morning here in NE Scotland, just back from my morning walkies and having to get changed already. The forecast is naff to say the least, not much chance of seeing any moon tonight!

Talking of moons (see the link there. . .) the new theme over at Macabre Monday is:

"Bad Moon Rising"
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that depicts a BIG BAD MOON.
Make it full, waxing, waning or crescent. Just make it big
and the main focus of your wonderfully wicked project.
Cute will get you in the door, but the Dungeon prefers things
creepy and dark.

And we have a sponsor in the shape of 'On Cupcake Moon'.

I have used my image Luna La Lupa (Wolf Moon) for this card:

I made it into a twisted easel this time. I do like these, although I do struggle in thinking up ways to make the thing stand other than flowers! lol.

My base card is purple core-dinations, with black card and mirri, and a printed dotty dp. The frame round the image is also a printed one, both from the pooter. Corners punched with a MS corner punch, and that piece was layered onto mirri and cut to shape. There is also a large mirri card circle beneath, meant to simulate a moon, although you can hardly see it, lol.

 Flowers are made using spare card and various punches, with a gem for the centres.

The image also has a moon, behind the girl and wolves. I have coloured my image with watercolour pencils, and scanned it in to reproduce the layers for my 3D effect. Here is a close-up:

And finally a face view of just the front:

Right, that's it from me today. Off to fill up the bath and have a nice, relaxing soak. After entering some other challenges that is! TTFN folks!
