Photo Inspiration...

Today starts the next challenge with Craft Your Passion -  a "Photo challenge".
On the right is the photo inspiration I have provided for this challenge.  I love the double rainbow!  The piercing around the moon on my card represents that double rainbow for me. I used all Distress Inks on this project with the Tim Holtz Technique of laying the colors down on a craft sheet, spritzing with water and then laying the CS in the colors till I have what I wanted for the moon.  The night sky is direct to paper, as is the torn paper used for the ground.  Since the timing is right for Halloween, I added the bats.  Otherwise, I tried to be pretty faithful to the inspiration.
Go check out what the Design Team did with this inspiration... could be the image, the colors, shapes, etc.  Then let's see what creative thing you can come up with and enter the challenge HERE.

                                                                                This card should be eligible for the following

and always, always, make what amuses you!
