Hello again! Here I am sharing my first ever Halloween card, which, as I write has not yet been received, and that is happening too much lately!
I’ve never made any Halloween things before and this was a rather messy attempt at a card, however my niece liked it a lot.
I took a piece of card just smaller than the size of the 8×8 card and I had a scrap of paper torn to make a division between the sky and the ground. It was a haphazard thing but it worked. For the sky I used Black soot, Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans to make the sky and for the ground I used Vintage Photo, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain. Once I had dried these I made the mistake of stamping the haunted house on it but used the wrong ink and I could barely see it so I then stamped the house onto some card, coloured it in and then mounted it over the image and it had a nice effect, so I made the same mistake with the tree. It makes them stand out a little. I tried to stamp a moon but it’s rather wonky! I ended up using a White Jelly Roll pen to colour that in. The witch on her broom with her cat I stamped with Versafine and then added some extra black to make her stand out but not too much . The other images were stamped separately and then added onto the card with the Tim Holtz Halloween ribbon. Oh and I added some bats too. I didn’t want to crowd it.
There we have it, my first ever Halloween card and if it doesn’t reach my friend I shall be really upset. Good job I took a photo of it!
Thank you for stopping by again and I look forward to your next visit.
