Happy Friday everyone… Who’s ready for the weekend? Today I have a Cute Halloween card using the Boo set from Waffleflower Crafts. This is another Big Bear and Bird collaboration and they have the sweetest images.
I created a background with some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks and the Cloud Border stencil from My Favorite Things on a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. I die cut a post it note to create a circle template and created the cloud with some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. I added some water splatters to the background and dabbed the excess with a paper towel creating the distressed look. Once it was dry I used the retired Blueprints #15 Die-namics from MFT to die cut it the panel.
I stamped all of the images onto some Bristol smooth cardstock using Ranger Archival Black ink and the Mini Misti. Then I colored the images in with Distress Markers in the following colors: Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Tea Dye, Wilted Violet, Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw, Carved Pumpkin & Spun Sugar. I moved the color around with the Nuvo Aqua Flow Water brushes. I used the coordinating Boo dies to cut the images out and adhered them to the panel with some foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment in the lower corner with some Black ink and adhered the panel to a Black A2 size card base. I wanted a little bit of sparkle so I added some Nuvo drops in White Blizzard to the hat, Bat wings and Ghost cheeks. When using the drops as an accent rather than creating dots, you want to spread it around so it’s just a thin layer and it will dry flat.
You can find more details on how I created this card in the video below!
Thanks for stopping by today.. Have a great weekend!
