Hello to everyone! Davina here on the blog with a new and colorful Theme, and a fun Halloween card. Everyone knows how much I adore using color boards to inspire the color choices for my projects. There’s just something about the challenge of focusing on a few beautiful colors and thinking outside of the box. Each month I will put together an easy to use, simple, and seasonal collection of colors to inspire you to use along with your Heffy Doodle projects.
The Color Snapshot for October was inspired by spooky pumpkin filled scene, that I found beautiful to the eye. With a brilliant turquoise sky, and just a hint of purple in the candlelight, I couldn’t resist putting these colors together for a fun Halloween Theme.
I don’t have any Halloween stamps from Heffy Doodle, so I chose to customize a recently released set into a “Howling” good time. I used the adorable pups from Who Let The Dogs Out and dressed them up for a Spooktacular party! I used the some simple masking techniques to add the unicorn hair and horn from Fluffy Puffy Unicorns, and some fairy wings from Absotoothly Awesome onto a couple of pups. Then I stamped and die cut some accessories to dress everyone else up. I used a tiara and top hat from Happily Ever Crafter, a cane from Quill you be mine, and a pumpkin from an old exclusive Stamptember set called More Than S’mores.
I die cut an A2 panel usingthe Heffy Cardstock in Simply Teal-iscious and the backdrop die called Stargazer, and inked the edges for more pop. Then I cut a grassy layer using Sunny Side Up cardstock and the Grassy Lass border dies. I inked the lower portion of the grassy layer as well for more dimension and to add more of the orange into the card. Once adhering my teal background onto a white panel I popped the grass onto the bottom portion using foam tape. I added my dressed up doggies to the scene and popped up a stitched banner sentiment across the sky, that I created with the Holiday Sentiment Duosand the Strips of ease dies.
I finished this fun party off with the addition of a few black bat sequins that I had in my stash. I really love how bright the contrast between the sky and grass is. And love that with the addition of a few neutral colors, you can transform a simple color board into a beautiful scene. I hope that you try these colors out on a project of your own! Thank you for stopping by,
