Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. Today we have a new challenge to share with you at Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge. Challenge #132 is a sketch challenge. Using the sketch shown in the image below, share with us YOUR creations!
*I will be taking my first official "vacation" of 2020, and, as such, will also be taking a much needed break from blogging. I will return to regular posting on Monday, September 21st. Be well friends and I'll see you when I return.
Halloween is my favorite cardmaking holiday, so I'm all about spooky colors, bat stencils and cute kitties hiding in pumpkins!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Frames & Flags dies, I cut the scalloped frame from black cardstock. I cut a 5" x 3 3/" piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to ink blend the distress oxide inks on to create that background. I first ink blended Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink onto the paper and then I laid the Flying Bats stencil on top. I then ink blended Seedless Preserve Distress Oxide ink and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink bats over the background color. I die cut the grass using the Land Borders die and Granny Apple Green cardstock. I stamped the cat and pumpkin image from the Newton's Boo-tiful Night stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock and colored it using Copic markers. I die cut the image using the coordinating Newton's Boo-tiful Night dies. I adhered the image to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I cut a thin strip of black cardstock and notched the right end before adhering it to the left side of the card (to fit the sketch image) and I stamped "Happy Halloween" in Memento Black ink on a thin strip of white cardstock to adhere directly below the black strip. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the image for added sparkle.
