Trick or Treat
Have you seen all the new images that Stampavie released last month? There are lots of adorable Christmas images, but there are also a few Autumn images thrown in. For my card today, I decided to use the new Batty image from Penny Johnson.
I just love the cute little Halloween images Penny drew for this release! I used some patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket’s Matilda paper pad. I added lots of stitching and some orange brads and some baker’s twine. I stamped the image on copic x-press it with tuxedo black memento ink and added a sentiment. I colored the image with copic markers. I used these marker colors: W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, E33, E35, E37, E29, V93, V95, V99, T1, T3, T5, T7, N1, N3, N5, N7, Y11, E000, E00, E11, E13, colorless blender.
Then, I stamped the image again on Eclipse Masking Tape and cut it out. I masked the image so I could spray the background. I punch a circle out of the masking tape and used the negative piece to spray the moon (using Y35 marker). Then, I put the circle over the sprayed moon to mask it. I tore a piece of cardstock and used it as a mask so I could spray the background (using T3 marker) to resemble a spooky, foggy night. I finished the image by spraying the background a different shade of gray (using W3 marker).
Next time, I will change the way I spray the moon so that it's peeking out from behind the fog, but I had fun experimenting with a new idea (to create a foggy background). :)
Have a great week!
