It’s time for one last scare of the year and this creepy card scene is the perfect way to do it. The Galaxy Sky Technique helps add the eerie darkness to this card. Head off to your craft rooms and create one last Halloween scare of your own using this easy to follow tutorial.
Now, cut a piece of 4” x 5 ½” watercolor paper. Watercolor paper is best to use as it will readily absorb the ink and the water drops that will be added later.
Working from the edge inwards, add some pink ink around the areas making sure to blend it into the yellow.
Add some purple ink blending it into the first two colors and covering any white areas that are showing.
Continue to layer the first three ink colors on adding more to darken the areas.
Dip your fingers in water and splash it onto the inked areas for a bleaching affect. Wait for a couple of seconds and then blot the paper dry with a paper towel.
For this next step, I like to use stencil brushes and dip them into the white paint. Then, run your finger over the bristles to splatter different sized spots of paint onto the piece and allow it to dry.
Whether you use the card to send a Halloween Hello or an invitation to your haunted party, this card will be the perfect fright for the night. The dark night sky will send a shudder up and down your spine with the Galaxy Sky Technique. So to all of you haunters out there have a, “Happy Halloween.”
