But before I go into a long schpiel about how I made my card, let me first give you our blog hop line up and links. Here are the designers for Artistic Outpost and their blog links. Hope you will stop by to see the wonderful artwork they have to share.
All righty then, here's the scoop on my card. I cut a square panel of Ranger manila card stock and did a technique similar to the Dylysions Perfect Splatter technique that Anita Houston shows in this video. Instead of using the Dylusions sprays, I used Black Soot and Picket Fence distress stains and Pewter Perfect Pearls Powder. That technique and those colors are so perfect for Halloween cards. The bats were stamped with Jet Black Archival ink and clear embossed. Mr. Bones was then stamped in white craft ink and white embossed.
I created a frame for this house photo stamp using the Ornate BIGZ die and the matching Ornate Mover and Shaper die to cut the inside. The house was stamped in black archival ink and sponged with Vintage Photo DI. The frame and the picket fence were painted with Black Soot Distress crackle paint. The Happy Halloween seal and the Tattered Banner sentiment were each sponged with Dusty Concord and Dried Marigold DI, then given one coat of UTEE which was flicked off pretty aggressively and once heated on, then sponged with Vintage Photo DI.
Before I adhered the main panel, I took the Brushed Pewter DS and ran it around the edge. It looks almost like it was silver embossed. The next panel was sponged with Dusty Concord and the spoder web was stamped in Jet Black archival and clear embossed. The back panel was sponged with Dried Marigold DI.
That's it - hope you like it. It's very 3-D with the fence and Tattered Banners sentiment bowed out. I also shared this on Sizzix I Spy Saturday.
Here are all the products I used to create this card. They are all available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
