I am so excited to participate in the ‘Till Death Do Us Craft collaboration with some amazingly talented girls to share a bunch of inspiration for you for Halloween. It is an event lasting till the end of the month, if you want to see our projects just use the #tilldeathdouscraft tag to search on social media.
As my kick off project I created a super cute night scene with Hello Bluebird stamps and dies.
I started with stamping and colouring the cuties from Little Haunters using my Copic markers. I cut them out with their coordinating dies.
Then I created a background on Bristol Smooth cardstock by blending Milled Lavender Distress Oxide ink first ever so lightly. Then I used the Clouds stencil from Heffy Doodle to fill the sky with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink. I used Black Soot on the edges to make it darker and usd the grassy stencil from Heffy Doodle to add grey grass for the critters to stand on. Then I splattered the panel with purple and black paint and also added some Liquid Pixie Dust sprinkles from Inkon3. This adds a subtle sparkle like stars in the sky. I could not resist adding a few drops of white ink too, just for the texture.
The sentiment is from Hello Bluebird also, I cut it out from black sparkle glitter paper from Simon Says Stamp. It has a purplish tone to it so it matched the night sky perfectly. After adhering it to the background I popped up the critters with 3D foam squares.
As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on their eyes and glossy accents on their little baskets. I adhered it to a black mat before mounting it on a white A2 sized card base.
Here is the list of the participants of the collaboration, I hope you hop along with us today.
I wish you enjoyed my first project and will pop in again soon for more fun.
