Carte a Jouer #4

The theme this time is plants like the pumpkin that have curly tendrils and to use coloured wax for the background. I melted several colours of blue wax onto the card and twisted it around while wet so that they ran and mixed. In one corner I made a mask of part of a circle and melted white wax into that area to give the impression of moonlight. I then drew 3 bats in black wax across the moon. My pumpkin is cut out of a coke can and embossed and coloured with alcohol inks. A thin glaze of glitter glue was applied to the dark sky to add shimmer from the moonlight.
