Last minute Halloween card series – Day #4 with Newton’s Nook Designs

halloween backdrop wm

Hello Everyone,

Today I brought a card which needs a bit more time to prepare but a lot of parts can be easily replaced with less technique oriented solutions which can save some time.

I definitely wanted to use the adorable Halloween set from Newton’s Nook Designs Newton’s Boo-tiful night. I could not decide though which pumpkin image to use so I created a design which fits them both 🙂

I started with stamping the images on Bristol Smooth cardstock and used my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush marker to colour them in. Then I fussy cut them (no coordinating dies unfortunately) and ran a Memento black marker around the edges for a more finished look.

I had another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, I created a circle mask for the moon and sponged Wilted Violet and Black soot distress inks on it. When it was all done, without removing the mask I applied silver glitter  embossing paste through the Starfield stencil. I set it aside to dry, meanwhile I inked up a scrap piece of cardstock with Black soot distress ink and die cut 2 grass borders. I sprinkled them with water for a more textured look. I also die cut a white picket fence (Lawn Fawn die) to add more dimension to my scene.

When the background was dry, I removed the mask and used Black soot distress ink (really watered it down) to add texture to the moon. I was impatient and dried it with my heat tool, so I could stamp the sentiment and the bats on it with black ink.

After I assembled the card, I added some glossy accent to the eyes and mouth of the pumpkins.
