Brayer Night Sky

Here is my second brayer project, a night sky background.
Surprisingly this was harder than I thought. I don't mean the actual brayer technique, but choosing the right colors. My first two tries ended up so dark that my black stamped images could barely be seen.

It turns out this looks best with light to medium hues, and not very dark blues.

I made the following 2 Halloween cards.

The one on the left was my first try (using the lighter blues). I stamped the moon and found when stamping my witch image overtop it didn't show up very well eventhough I had heat set the pearlized ink. So for the 2nd card I masked my moon instead. This worked much better.

Here are the close ups and supply lists for each:

Supply list:
