Building a Flying Witch Halloween Background with a Night Sky

by Lori Warren

Happy Halloween! Today, I will create an ink blended backgrounds with a brayer and blue, brown, and teal colors of VersaColor pigment ink for a Night Sky Halloween Flying Witch Card. It’s a quick and easy way to transform a piece of white cardstock into a blended night sky. I stamp bare tree silhouettes in the foreground to give this design the look of a fall landscape. Another optional step is to flick some white acrylic

Finally, I add a flying witch to the sky section of this card panel and assemble the card! This is an easy Halloween greeting card for friends and family.
