One Layer Dirty Style...

As spirits roam the neighborhoods at night, Let loose upon the Earth till it be light... -Nicholas Gordon

The new Dirty Dozen Challenge was for them to make a one layer card...Seriously...ONE LAYER, no other patterned paper, card stock...Zero, Zip, Zilch! Embellishments or ribbon are ok, but Only the Card Base for Paper!!! Oh, and no pink and use masking. ;) They totally inspired me to Finally try the Zindorf Technique!

I used watercolor paper and after embossed the tree, brayered the ground and sky (masking the moon with a circle punch,) I went over the background with an Aquapainter to give it a little bit of a watercolor feel.

Stamps: Winter Tree (a muse,) Happy Halloween (Imaginisce,) Witch & Bat (Mike's $1 Sets)
Paper: Watercolor Paper
Ink: Black (Whispers,) Kiwi Kis, Old Olive, Marigold Morning, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red (SU,) Versamark
Misc: Aquapainter (SU,) Goosebump Stickers (Imaginisce,) White Gel Pen (Sakura)

Thanks for stopping by!
