Hello & Happy Halloween Everyone!
I've got on my Spooky Halloween Pants & Shirt today
to celebrate this fun Candy Feast day! LOL
With Halloween in mind - I've got 1 last Halloween card
to show you - I made this the other day using another
NEW die from Gina Marie Designs!
I got ALL inked up on this one! I think it turned out cool!
I thought I would share HOW I created this card with you -
Not everyone uses Distress inks or sprays, and I thought
running through the process might help someone else try it out! :)
I used my Distress inks to create the background - I started out with the orange, yellow, green, & purple colors - Then I sprayed my Watercolor paper with water, waited a minute then placed a paper towel over it, then lifted the paper towel - Doing that process helps remove some of the ink and leaves light water spots on the paper -
Then I took my Black re-inker & mixed some water with it and some
Shimmer mist - then, took my splatter paint brush to splatter
it on top of the colors I had already on the paper -
I thought purple splatters would give it a nice look too - so,
I took my Purple re-inker and did the same
method as I did for the black one -
(I only did this with the re-inkers because I don't own
any of the colored Spray stains) - If I did, I would have use those instead of the re-inkers!) (just an FYI) :)
Then I had to wait to let it dry
THAT TOOK FOREVER!!! So I used my Heat tool to help it along! :)
I then used my Brushed Pewter Distress Spray and then
Sprayed the entire card with the Frost Shimmer spray
Again - HAD to let it dry! :)
So, you really can't tell in the photo, but the card does have a sparkle/shimmer to it, because of the shimmer frost spray I used....
While it was drying, I cut out the Spooky Tree die 3x's
to give it some dimension and the Bats
I cut out 8x's - 3x's each for the ones on the front of the card -
and the other 2 for the inside of my card! :)
Before cutting out my dies I added Double sided adhesive to the black cardstock before cutting - this way everything has adhesive on it already, which makes it easier to layer & adhere to my card
Once the card was completely dry - I Die Cut it with a
Stitched Card Mat Die then added the Tree & Bats to the card front
The sentiment was embossed with 2 different Embossing powders
I used my Static Tool Powder first, then I stamped the Sentiment with Versamark Ink (Using the Misti tool) -
I added some Orange/Red mixture of Embossing powder and heat set it
Then I went back and re-stamped the sentiment with versamark ink
and Used the Black Embossing powder - I did offset
the stamp just a tiny bit - Which gave it that COOL Shadow Effect!
I then attached the card to my Black card base - and thought
it needed just a tiny bit of sequins - which I adhered with some glossy accents - Then added some Washi tape to the white card mat that
was going inside my card along with the 2 bats
