A Halloween Card

Today I have a Halloween card to share. I made it for the current Lawnscaping Challenge Halloween or Color Combo:


Here it is:


I started with a panel of watercolor paper, and inked it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and an ink blending tool, applying the ink heavier onto the bottom part and softer on the top part to create a gradient background. Then I used the cole's ABCs dies to die-cut letters from black card stock and adhered them to the panel. Now I stamped the bats and the spider with her net and colored them with Copics. The panel was adhered to a card base that I inked up with orange Distress Ink. Finally I added some black sequins. I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

A Cute She-Dog

Hi everybody! A few days ago, I was playing with my Simon Says Stamp goodies and thought that the dog from the YOU ARE PAWESOME set would make a cute she-dog. So I dressed her up a bit and created this card:


The background of my card was created with the Simon Says Stamp exclusive stencil EXTRA LARGE DOTS, an ink blending tool and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I gently applied ink in circular motions, trying to achieve a gradient look. Then I stamped the sentiment to the bottom of my card. The dog is stamped onto cardstock and colored with Copic markers, then I cut her out and adhered her with foam tape (I recommend buying the set with the matching dies, it would have made this a lot of easier!). To dress her up, I gave her a bow that I die-cut from cardstock using the little bow from this set. The card was finished off with some clear little sequins. I hope you like it!

Thanks for visiting!

Color Coordinates

Here I am, back with a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Color Coordinates". I've been busy creating projects I can't show yet, although you might get a sneak on Instagram :o)
However, today I took a break and created this card.

These colors scream for a Halloween card, but I wanted to play with my Super Duo set and made this one:


I don't think I'll ever get enough of this set. The supergirl is colored with Copics, the background behind the negative die-cut is, too. I hope you like it!
Thanks for visiting!
