Hello everyone, I have another Halloween card to share with you today. As usual, I have been mixing and matching stamp sets to create a night time scene. I love to look back through my older stamp sets to see what I already have that will work alongside the newer stamp sets, and I hope that this project might inspire you to do the same.
I stamped the owl from the Hocus Pocus stamp set and the dragon from the Here be Dragons
stamp set onto a piece of smooth watercolour paper, and then covered
them with a mask. I coloured the background with Distress Inks: Forest Moss, Crushed Olive, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Shaded Lilac, Seeded Preserves, and
spritzed it with water. I added some foliage from the Spring Foliage
stamp set, using first and second generation stamping. I added some stencilling with a spider's web mask, using the
same colour inks as I had used on the original background.
I removed the masks and coloured the images with Polychromos pencils. Finally, I added some bats randomly over the night sky. All of the black stamping was done with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
