Spooktacular Day Card
Hi crafty friends! Welcome to another Color Me Happy Wednesday with Claudia (@mrsclocards). For today’s card I used the Ghoulfriends stamps and dies set, the Costume Critters stamps and dies set, the Imperial Stitched Rectangles dies and the Frights Night Patterned Paper Pad.
First of all, I stamped the ghosts from Ghoulfriends stamp set and various objects from the Costume Critters stamp set on a sheet of Heffy Doodle Alcohol Marker Friendly Cardstock using a black ink. For the coloring I used the following Copic markers.
– GHOSTS: W1, R20, R22
– ORANGE stuff: Y00, Y04, Y07, Y09
– VIOLET stuff: V000, V12, V15, V17
When they were done, I added highlights with a white gel pen and I used the Ghoulfriends coordinating dies and the Costume Critters coordinating dies to cut everything out.
For the background, on a piece of Heffy Doodle White Cardstock I ink blended Distress Oxide in Black Soot, Villainous Potion and Wilted Violet then I splattered some white watercolor over the panel. When it was dry, I used the second biggest Imperial Stitched Rectangles die to cut it out.
For the sentiment, I heat embossed the phrase from the Costume Critters stamp set on a piece of orange cardstock, I trimmed it down and I glued it over a piece of black cardstock to create a thin border.
At this point, I placed all the images over the background and moved them around until all the space was covered, then I used foam tape or glue to keep them in place. Finally, I trimmed a violet striped sheet from the Frights Night Patterned Paper Pad and I used it to cover my card base, then I glued the ghosts rectangle over it.
I hope your day is spooktacular and happy crafting!
