Pumpkin Scarecrow & Halloween
We continue the Halloween theme today with
who is going to show us her super spooky card
I made a spooky scene with items that aren't necessarily Halloween themed.
First, for my moonlit background, I selected Glossy paper
and cut out a circle from masking sheet to protect the moon.
Using Distress inks I then brayered the night sky, darker at the top.
I used this menacing Branches stamp by Impression Obsession.
The picture shows Versafine ink and standard cardstock as I made the fatal mistake of forgetting to take off the moon mask before stamping!
For my second try I switched to Glossy paper to get a deeper tone
as the texture of the standard card gets in the way.
When using Glossy card stock Dye ink is a better choice so
I switched from Versafine to Memento dye ink.
I stamped the Boo sentiment with an old alphabet stamp .
(To make sure the letters are spaced correctly I used the "U"
as a place holder as it is the same width as the "O".)
Last, but not least, I stamped a "crow", a bird from the CI-329 stamp set.
To make it pop off the page I used Archival ink.
For finishing touches I darkened the corners of the image
with black ink and cut the excess cardstock.
Against that dark and eerie background
I needed a colourful and fun addition
and settled on Pumpkins.
I made those with hand cut ovals but you could use dies, if you have them.
I coloured the cardstock with Distress inks,
adding Walnut around all the ovals of the big pumpkin.
I also added a die-cut leaf from my bits & bobs jar
