The elements that I chose to use from Sarah's card are as follows
  • Stitched shape
  • Paper ribbon/banner
  • Water colour background and the colour (sort of)

Here is my card

Have A Haunted Halloween

Being that Halloween is drawing nearer I decided to create a creepy crawly and slightly SpOoKy card for you all 😱

I used two stamp sets to create this card plus some pieces from the Spooky Night DSP.
I due cut the tree and moon using the stitched shapes framelits and then stamped some images of bats from the Graveyard Gate stamp set.
The frame behind the stitched square is the off cut that has just been reversed. When all was adhered in place I used a black artline pen to continue the tree slightly off the page. I stamped the image of the crow on top of the top most branch.
The mouse and witches hat images are from the Spooky Cat stamp set along with the sentiment.

For the inside I just stamped the bubbling potions and cauldron below a strip of the Spooky Nights DSP.
That was all that was needed to carry the theme from the front into the inside of my card.

Ink It! Stamp It! - Holiday Catalogue

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome back everyone 😊
And welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. 
This month we will be sharing projects inspired by our projects created using products from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. 
The full line up below will guide through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite item is from the new catalogue.

I chose to use 2 stamp set called 'Snowflake Sentiments' and the 'Merry Little Labels' for my card today along with a couple of techniques to create my card with. 
One technique is water colour washing, this was combined with another technique, called resist emboss. I also used a masking technique to stamp the silhouette images at the bottom of the card.

Seasons Greetings

Basic Instructions.
To start my scene, I taped up around the edge piece of a piece of water colour paper. 
I then wet the paper with a large brush. 
I applied my colours, with the card stock wet the colour travels and blends without leaving any harsh lines.
I heat dried the first  layer of colours.
 Once done, I embossed the snowflakes in white embossing powder and repeated the water colour wash over the top to strengthen the colours, making them more vibrant. 
I left this to dry naturally.

When this was completely dry, I stamped my images by repeat stamping a stamp fro the 'Merry Little Labels' set. 
I then used my black Stampin' Write marker to fill in some areas with larger silhouettes of pine tree shapes.

I used my versamark re-fill and a small brush to apply versamark to the tree line and some ground area, dusting this with white embossing powder and then heating until smooth.
This gave the effect of snow coverage on the trees.
 When the scene was complete I trimmed it down to size and backed it onto basic black card stock.

The sentiment has also been embossed using the white embossing powder then trimmed to a banner and glued in place.

Well, what do you think?

Me I really like the effect, and that sweet little deer silhouette just makes it 😊

Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope you'll join us again next month to see our hop all about techniques
