Amira's Halloween Play Challenge #4 - Feather and Ravens

Welcome back to Day #4 of the #HalloweenPlayChallenge.

Today I am playing with this magnificent Feather & Ravens die!!!


We have crows as well as ravens here in Australia which made me wonder what the difference between a raven and crow is.

I did go off and have a look. If you are interested, see HERE

Back to my card :)

I assembled my die-cut elements on a water color card front and it sparked such a wonderful scene in my mind that I knew straight away the scene I wanted to create.


I used my Distress Oxides to create a beautiful night sky of greys and blues (Faded Jeans and Iced Spruce).
Once again the crescent moon and the bats feature here.


I love the stark black of the die-cut raven against the blue-grey of the sky.


Love the splashes of grey on the background making it look like more bats in the distance.


And I love the romantic sentiment here "Seek the silence of the night by moonlight"- 
Just perfect for this scene.



I enjoyed this die-set so much I made another card while I was at it this time reversing the colors in the background.


Love the bird in flight over the full moon...


... and the chalky outline which mimics the effect of the moon glow on the feather and on the raven.


And here are my 2 cards side by side.



The process video for this can be found HERE
