Blood Moon

Hello All!

Well oops I missed the CAS-ology challenge for moon. But I just couldn't resist making this as soon as inspiration hit. I was watching television last night when I saw a massive moon rise over a cluster of pine trees.. That's it!!

Okay now I had the idea but lets take it a bit further and make it a blood moon! What on earth is a blood moon? Click here for a short video on what a blood moon is. I am certified space nut and I love it!! The mysteries of the Universe never ever bore me! I could watch space shows for eternity.. (get it! okay bad joke).

Now that I am back down to earth here is my card for tonight.

Card is 5.5" x 4"
I wanted it to look like a panorama picture
Gigantic blood moon for Halloween!
Detail showing the understated sentiment.
I thought this card would be great for the Halloween season.. It was actually very simple to make. First I die cut a circle and masked of the moon and the ground line and sponged the sky. Using the negative space of the circle die cut I started to sponge the moon. Took the mask off the ground line and stamped the tree line and sponged the rest black. Finally stamped the sentiment. Easy to make but WOW how effective and bold!! And well..... spooky.

I would like to submit this card to the following blogs:
