Katzelkraft - Houston...

Hi everyone!
It's Tuesday and I'm back with a new Katzelkraft creation! 

Strange things are going on in the woods...

For the background I used a stencil with tree pattern, but instead of stenciling with ink, I tried something different this time.
I recently bought some PaperArtsy Infusions and wanted to test if what I had in mind would work. 
I sprinkled a little of the pigment powder on the stencil, sprayed water over it and then put a piece of Bristol paper on it. Pressed this lightly, carefully lifted it off and let it dry. 
I covered the part for the moon and sponged the whole area with Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot (Distress Oxide). This dulled the trees a bit, but I still liked it. I should have done it the other way around, but for a first try I'm quite pleased! - I'll know better next time ;)
I shaded the tree trunks and some of the branches with a dark gray pastel crayon to make them stand out better. I took off the mask of the moon, sponged it with Fosillized Amber (Distress Oxide) and shaded it with some dark gray pastel color as well.
For the ground, I applied three narrow strips of washi tape. I colored two pabos with alcohol markers, fussy cut them and glued them on. The sentiment is stamped on light yellow colored paper, cut in label and glued on as well.

Hope you like it. - See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;)
