I don’t make Halloween cards too often so I was super excited to get to use this little gem again. This is The Boo Crew stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.
I colored all of my images with my copic markers on X–Press It Copic Blending Card. Then I used my silhouette to cut out this spooky tree twice and layered them to give it a touch of dimension.
I used Bristol Smooth card stock for my card base since I knew I was going to be ink blending and I cut it to 5″x7″. For my background I ink blended Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick and Black Soot distress oxide inks. I splattered water, Black Soot, White Gouache and a little Liquid Stardust for a little sparkle. I cut out a circle with my Nested Circles dies from masking paper to mask off a moon.
For the grass I ink blended Peeled Paint, Forest Moss and Black Soot distress oxide inks. I cut the grass twice using my Slimline Grassy Border die by Lawn Fawn. I also splattered the grass with water and Black Soot. I popped up the front panel of grass with foam tape.
Once I pulled the mask off, I smooshed Squeezed Lemonade and Iced Spruce distress inks with some water on my media mat and painted the moon. For some finishing touches, I stamped a few bats and I heat embossed the spiderweb and spider with black embossing powder. I also heat embossed the second portion of the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card stock.
So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
