I can’t believe it’s already almost Halloween!! I’m not ready for the colder weather yet. But it was fun to make a Halloween card this week, before the Christmas cards start pouring out.
I started out on some Bristol Smooth card stock and ink blended Squeezed Lemonade and Barn Door distress oxide inks. I then took the Tim Holtz Stamptember stencil and some Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste and went right over the top of my ink blended background. This Stamptember stencil is no longer available, but Tim Holtz has a very similar one called Hocus Pocus.
I decided to splatter some Black Soot distress ink on the back ground for some added interest. I used the Halloween Hill die by Impression Obsession for the silhouette effect but I wanted to use the houses from the Best Witches stamp set by MFT so I just trimmed the house off the die and replaced it with the ghost filled houses.
I copic colored my images and popped the witch up with some foam squares. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Best Witches stamp set in white embossing powder.
To finish off my card, I used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen to add a little glitter here and there. I rounded the top corners and added my design to a top folding black card base. I used the same colors to add a panel to the inside so that a written message could be added. I thought it would be fun to add a few details to the inside with the Trick or Treat stamp set by SSS.
Copic colors used:
Witch: FYG2, YG25, YG23, YG21, V17, V15
Boots: T9, T6
Skin: E000, E00, E1, E13, R20, R30
Hair: E09, E15, E97
Broom: E47, E44, E43
Houses: C7, C5, C4, C3
Roof and door: C9, C6, Chimney N3
So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
