I love to make Halloween cards and the new stamp sets were calling my name! Greeting Card Kids & Wicked Cool. The bats in Wicked Cool remind me of the Scooby Doo Cartoon, one of my favorites as a child. I started with Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the girl with Black Stazon. Next I watercolored the image (light on the water since this is Whisper White) with my SU Classic Inks. I then took a Versamark Pen and colored over the image and then applied Clear Embossing powder and heated. I punched out a 1 3/4" Circle and applied Dotto adhesive to the back and then brayered the whole card in Daffodil Delight. Using sponge daubers I then sponged on the Wild Wasibi for the grass, Pumpkin Pie was next around the whole card, then Crushed Concord and some Early Espresso. I removed the Moon mask and sponged the moon lightly with Daffodil Delight, to give it a little depth I sponged a little darker in some spots. Then stamped the bats flying in the moon. The Scallop Oval around my sentiment was punched then I put Dotto on a strip of paper and put the Oval back into the punch at different angles to get the jagged edges. The Sentiment is done with Heat & Stick powder and Black Glitter.
Thanks for stopping by :-)
