Hey everyone, Hope you are all doing well. I had couple of hours free today and I made a card. Yay! So happy to share this card with you. I did a lot of ink blending. One of my favourite thing to do. I love colours. They make me happy. Halloween colours! Even more happy 🙂 Then I added texture and sparkle to it using a stencil and glimmer paste. Here is the card.
The distress ink colours I used on the background are Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserve, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed. All products using to make this card are from Simon Says Stamp. I blended the colours few times to get a good blend. Using the Deco Weave stencil from Simon Says Stamp and Nuvo’s Moonstone glimmer paste I added texture and sparkle to the background panel. Once dry, I sponged the edges using Black Soot distress ink to get the dark moody halloween feel to the background panel. I adhered by the panel to the card base.
For the sentiment and focal point, I used Simon’s Trick or Treat die. The backer, I die cut using gold glitter cardstock and the sentiment I die cut using black cardstock thrice, stacked glued and adhered to the background die. To make the sentiment pop, I used a vellum circle die cut layer behind. The sentiment circle layer is adhered to the card front using foam adhesive.
Finally a few black sequins to tie in with all the other black elements topped with white glossy drops to finish off the card.
Hope you like my halloween card. It is simple but the colour and texture along with the big bold sentiment makes a big impact I think. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Have a lovely day!
