Since Halloween is right around the corner and I decided I would go with the obvious for this color challenge and create a Halloween card. (Below I linked to all the products I used or closely resembled what I used to create this card.)
I started off the whole process with my cute little images from the “Witch way is the candy” stamp set from My Favorite things.
I stamped all the images from the set out on to some neehna solar white 110lb card stock using some Momento tuxedo black ink. Then I pulled out my copic markers and went to town colouring. I only added very minimal extra colours as I really wanted to see how much I could do with just the challenge colors.
At this time I wasn't sure what else I was going to do for the card so I pulled out my Alcohol Inks, Sunset orange and citrus green and just started to play around with the inks, rubbing alcohol and straw. I liked a couple of the backgrounds I created and ended up using one for the card which you can see below.
I decided that I would use the alcohol ink as a sky and build my scene around that.
I ended up creating a 6x6 card which would give me the space to create the scene I was visioning in my head. I started with the base which is created from Jelly bean purple cardstock, I then cut down two layers of card stock one of which is pattern paper from my stash. I adhered the two layers together flat and then poped them up with foam tape on to the card base.
From there I start to build my scene, I started by attaching a scrap of green patterned paper that I had previously cut with my hill border die, I attached that to the alcohol ink background and ran that through with a big nesting circle die, since I was at my machine I die cut the rest of my elements for the card, i.e. fence, hills and stamped images. Before I adhered everything on to my scene i decided to add a little extra something to the alcohol ink background to make it look more like a night sky. I mixed glow in the dark embossing powder with translucent texture paste and then used a stencil from my stash to add some stars to the background.
Once the texture paste was dry, I attach most of the images down flat, only popping up to the grass, the witch, cat and finally the sentiment.
I decide to finish of the inside of the card using left over pieces of the pattern paper as well as the coordinating cardstock used for the rest of the card. This added some stability to the card itself as the base was not 110 , as well as finishing off the look of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy haunting stamp set, which is also from My favorite things.
I hope you found some inspiration and that you come on over the Facebook challenge group and play along.
