Friends with SPOOKY Flair!

It's been almost a month since I played along with Unity Friends with Flair! Not sure where the time went. ;) This morning, I felt like creating a spooky Halloween scene.



I started by punching a circle out of a sticky note, then using the outside as a mask to lightly sponge some yellow and orange for the moon. Then I covered the moon, tore another sticky note for the ground, and sponged the sky with some yellow moonlight and purples for a spooky sky. Then I used the other half of the torn note to mask the sky and sponged in the desolate grey ground. I stamped and embossed the tree from Fright Night and added the whimsical BOO! to lighten the mood just a little bit. I filled in the inside of the letters with white gel pen. 
Do you think Halloween counts as fall? I hope so, because I'm going to enter this in the current FALL {ippity} challenge. October is a part of autumn, after all. :D 
Don't forget to check out all the inspiration over at the Unity blog! Have a great weekend. 

Supplies: white & black cardstock, Unity/Echo Park Fright Night & (?) boo stamps, milled lavender distress, Memento dandelion, cantaloupe, elderberry, London fog & gray flannel & Brilliance graphite black inks, clear embossing powder, white gel pen Pin It Now!

Superb sky, I love the purple.
It's getting a bit chilly here at night but the days are still nice. Sadly I have had to put the shorts and tshirts away.
