Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. I will not reveal a big secret if I tell you, that the Ghoulfriends stamp set is my favourite from the latest release. I wanted to use them a little differently this time so I created a cute card for book lovers. Let me show you how I made it.
I started with stamping and colouring the cute ghots and books usig Copic markers. The colours I used:
- ghost: BV01, BV00, BV000, BG13, BG11
- books: G24, G21, G20, Y15, Y11, BG13, BG11, BV01, BV000, E41
I cut them all out with the coordinating dies. Then I was working on the library background: on a piece of heavy weight white cardstock I applied white texture paste (which I have mixed with a bit of Black Soot Distress oxide ink) over the Brick by Brick stencil. When it was all dry, I did a little ink blending on the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink.
I heat embossed a sentiment on a thin strip of black cardstock with white embossing powder and another one I stamped on a grey oval which I cut with the Pebble Sentiments die.
After assembling the scene, I embellished it with a few sequins from the Hocus Pocus Sparkle Mix and added glossy accents to the glasses of the cute ghost.
I wish you got inspired to look at your stamps differently. Don’t forget to show us what you create in our Facebook group, we love to see your cards!
See you soon,
