Happy Fall Creative Scrapbookers! Does the change of season excite you? I LOVE it! I just wish winter didn’t follow so quickly! This time of year always gets me thinking about Halloween. I get energized from the decorations, costumes, candy and of course Halloween themed scrapbooking and cardmaking products!
My card share started with pulling these Stampers Anonymous sets from my stash ~ I love the both!
I pulled out all kinds or Ranger Inks and got started with my plan!
I stamped my web image onto a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock and embossed with Speckled Egg Embossing Glaze. This gave me a FABULOUS image to resist the Distress Oxide Inks I would be using to create my background.
I added several layers of the grungy stamp to the edges with all the colours from the background and also spritzed with water.
Using black Archival Ink, I stamped the skull image where I wanted the final placement, it’s OKAY to overlap the images, this will be a guide for the final placement.
I stamped the skulls again on a white mixed media paper, you could also use computer paper. I fussy cut the skulls, just inside the outside lines and adhere them to my card using a Ranger Glue Stick. The final step was to outline with a black Dylusions Paint Pen. This technique results with a very defined image on the background.
The bows were stamped and cut from Super Stock and adhered with a rolled up Glue Dots to add some dimension! I coloured in a few teeth on the one skull for added interest, it makes it look like a separate stamp!
I’m not sure what a COVID Halloween will look like, but I am certain this card will bring a smile to someone’s day. Is this the year you make Halloween cards? I sure think you should!
I also think you should grab a copy of the Fall Issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine…it’s FABULOUS!
