Watercolour Classes - Stampin' Up!

I created this - Stampin' Up!Halloween Scene using sponging and masking. You can try it yourself.
It's easier than it looks!

Card Recipe:
Card stock: Whisper White for the card base - A4 cut in half and scored down the middle.
 Stampin' Up! watercolour paper 10.5cm x 15cm
Aquabrush, Blender Pen
Inks: Black Stazon, Old Olive, Real Red, Midnight Muse,
Marvellous Markers: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Basic Black, Blush Blossom, Sahara Sand
White uniball signo gel pen
Stampsets: Greeting Card Kids, Lovely As A Tree (the largest pine tree image)
Adhesive: Sticky Strip (so the card front sits flat)
Punch: 1 3/4" Circle Punch
Post-it notes
Stampin' Sponges (quartered)

*Stamp the images first in black Stazon ink.
*Mask out a 1 3/4" circle with the post-it notes (punch out 2 pieces of post-it paper so the punch doesn't jam).
 *Cut a piece of printer paper or post-it note to make the shape of the hill and mask it.
*Lightly sponge Real Red ink  above the hill shape, then sponge Midnight Muse  ink into the sky, and blend the 2 colours near the horizon.
*Remove the mask from the hill and sponge Old Olive over the entire hill.
*Colour the image of the girl and the pumpkin using an aqua brush and markers.
*Blend Black ink into the bottom of the picture.
*Allow the paper to dry (otherwise it will get muddy), then come in with the markers and highlight the shadows. (I had the light source coming in from the left). add some Daffodil Delight to the moon, and anchor the pumpkin with Sahara Sand shadowing.
*Add white gel pen to highlight the parts that are coming toward you.
*Draw 3 bats (start with a bird and add wing details).
