The background is blended using an assortment of Distress Oxide Inks to achieve the look I was hoping for. I spritzed some Shimmer Spray and water over the top and set it aside to dry. In the mean time, I die cut the tree and fence using the Spooky Town: Yard dies. I glued two of each die cut together for a more substantial piece. I popped them up using foam squares and I REALLY like how they created shadows onto the blended background for a fun effect!
I stamped all of the images from the set using my MISTI, but only ended up using the ghost and kitty with a few other fun additions, like the candy corn and hat. Once they were all colored with Copic Markers, I spritzed them with shimmer spray as well. The band around the hat, the candy corn, candy and kitty's bow all got a coating of Nuvo Crystal Glaze for some added shine.
Once all of the elements were created, I assembled the card using foam squares. The sentiment is heat embossed using silver powder. I really like how it turned out.
You can see my inspiration here. I didn't enhance this photo at all, so it is a little dark, but I just LOVE how it looks. The colors in my card ended up being brighter, but I like that, especially with the "cutesie" stamps.
The blended background panel is adhered to a black A2 card base for some contrast. I also added a few Sparkling Clear sequins for some added shine (it really didn't need any more) LOL! I just love how it turned out! I hope to get more Halloween cards made this year since it is one of my favorite holidays! Thanks for fluttering by!
p.s. I have been keeping a little secret for a while now so stop by tomorrow when I spill the beans! EEEp!
