Pretty Pink Posh | Halloween Theme Week

October 4, 2018

Hello crafty friends! Today’s card I made using a bunch of fun Halloween goodies from Pretty Pink Posh for our Halloween Theme Week! I just love these sweet images and the colors are very different from my usual soft colors and pastels – but I just LOVE this card. Maybe because it’s unique to my usual…or maybe because I love Halloween. Either case, if you like it as much as I do, I will show you how I made it!

First, I stamped all the images I decided to use with Copic-Friendly Memento Tuxedo Black onto white card stock. I colored everything with Copic markers. After I finished coloring, I die cut the images with coordinating dies and set aside to word on my background.

I love to ink blend so I knew I was going to make an ink blended background. I was going to do my usual and just have orange fade into white. But I don’t know. Today I was inspired to step outside of my comfort and just play with colors. I was so glad I did! I blended Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple, ¬†Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and Chipped Sapphire for my background. I love that the dried marigold was dramatically lighter than the rest of the colors making it look like it’s glowing. I splattered water then splattered paint and set this aside to dry.

While my background was drying, I die cut the smaller of the two Window Frames dies out of vellum paper to make a translucent moon for my background. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Now it was time to assemble my card! I adhered the vellum “moon” on first with strong tape at the bottom of the moon since I knew my critters would cover this up. I also added a few dots of wet glue to the back of the sentiment to hide the adhesive. I then arranged the critters from Halloween Pals on with foam tape. I used glue dots for Halloween Friends’ bats and spider straight on the card. I added a few gold jewels and my card is finished!
