CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stamp TV CSS Alumni Blog Hop.  It's been a long time since I have participated in one of these hops, so hopefully I got everything right!  This time around is a sketch challenge by the super talented Melissa Cash:
 

If you arrived here from Miesje's blog you are in the right place.  If not, then you can return to Stamp TV and start from the beginning.



I used an older Gina K set - Boo!, illustrated by Asela Hopkins.  Stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black on Gina K PL white cardstock.  Reverse masked the moon sponging with Memento Dandelion, Cantelope and a little bit of Tangelo.  Then masked the moon and sponged Memento Blue Sky, Danube Blue, Paris Dusk and Tuxedo Black.  Sponged the edges of the black mat with some white.  Added some washi tape and Sakura Stardust gel pen to the windows for some sparkle.  Cardstock used:  Gina K Pure Luxury White, Black, Vibrant Violet and Orange from the Calypso Assortment.
 
Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (October 30), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!
 
Next up on the hop is Tera!
