Only the moon howls – for Crafty Individuals

It is time for the new Crafty Individuals challenge which Jean has launched on her blog.  The theme is simply 'October'.  That means your project theme can be anything that springs to your mind when you think of the month of October.  It may remind you of Halloween of course, or Autumn perhaps in all its glorious colours, or even simply a time when Christmas preparations begin?  Just follow where your imagination takes you! In return for using just one (or more) CI products you can enter the challenge and receive a 25% discount to the CI on-line store valid until the 10th November, what a bonus.

Quite a simple tag from me today highlighting how versatile the CI stamps are. I have used the silhouette crow and tree from the CI-361 stamp plate, stamping the one tree lots of times to give me the undergrowth feel I wanted.
The background started as a mop-up from a previous project which (I think) used walnut stain and pumice stone distress inks. I then blended shaded lilac and faded jeans over to get that early night time feel to it. The crow is just landing on the top branches of the tree.
The moon is part of a punched circle given the blended spritz and flick treatment. The iron gate is a piece left from another CI project and is an on the edge die.
The quote comes from the internet. I love making myself a page of different quotes and sentiments under one theme – and of course you can guess what I labelled this one as.

Looking forward to seeing your October creation linked up, have a great month.

Enjoy your Sunday and have a creative week ahead.
