Welcome back friends,
Before receiving these Halloween dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I would of said "I don't make Halloween cards" but now that I have played with these dies and stamps from this collection I am hooked. These dies are amazing and if you like doing scenes then make sure you check out all the others from this collection. Especially the Haunted House Set that I used in my previous Elizabeth Craft Post.
To create a card similar simply follow these steps:
Step 1. Cut yourself a piece of watercolor paper to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and a card base 4 1/4" x 11' and fold in half.
Step 2. Die cut a circle from a post it note and add it where you would like your moon to be.
Step 3. Using Distress Oxides Inks in spiced marmalade, black soot, and fossilized amber add ink directly from the pad onto your craft sheet.
Step 4. Then spray the craft mat with water to activate the oxidation.
Step 5: Smoosh the paper directly into the ink puddles on your craft mat. Every time you do this part you will get a different effect. dry with a heat tool between layers.
Step 6 Keep smooshing & drying until your get your desired look.
Step 7. Peel away your mask and color the circle using a yellow marker.After your background is completed continue the remaining steps.
Step 8. Die cut the tree and using the black soot ink, sponge the edges. Attach to card front using foam tape for added dimension.
Step 9. Lastly die cut the fence and bat and adhere to your card to complete the scene.
