A Witch, a lantern & a full moon Halloween card (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I loved creating this background after watching my favourite Youtuber - Vicky Papaioannou creating a glowing moon. Here's a link to her card - HERE, it's amazing and it's easier than you'd think, I think mine turned out pretty cool and this was my first attempt. I used oxide inks for the background and stamped some leafy stamps to give the impression she's walking through the great outdoors. The stunning image is from Crafts and Me/ Hannah Lynn is the artist.
