I’ve been having a blast blending uncommon distress ink colors together for backgrounds. This time I tried purple and green. It seemed like a perfect spooky Halloween scene. Once the background was created I decided to add Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween set with it and here’s what I created!
It’s all in the details…
- Blended distress inks on the background panel, spritzed it with water and adhered it to a card base.
- Stamped, colored and die cut all my images. Then I tried to figure out placement. At this point I realized I needed another element and that’s when the fence came to mind. So I die cut that and added it to the elements. It almost looks like bordering backyards with dogs talking to each other.
- The mummy dog, pumpkin bucket, wand, dog bowl and moon are glued directly to the card front and everything else is popped up with foam tape and squares.
- Then I stamped and heat embossed my sentiments and decided it was a little plain still. At this point I got out my silver watercolor and splattered it across the top of the card. It adds great shimmer in the light.
This is a pretty simple but super cute Halloween card that would be great for any dog lover in your life.
Do you send out Halloween cards or give gifts to anyone? I usually make a mini card for my daughter’s lunchbox and give her something besides candy just for fun. Leave a comment below to tell me what you do.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day.
