Hello! It's Sara, from Much Love, Sara. I have a Halloween card to share with your today - nothing spooky about this one, however. The adorable image makes this a fun card for kids and adults alike.
For today's card, I began by stamping the image from theHocus Pocus Dear Stamp, withBlack Hybrid Ink, and coloring in the image with Prismacolor Pencils. Once I had the image the way I wanted, including a fun green glow coming from her crystal ball, I die cut it using thecoordinating die.
To create the card background, I taped theSlim Line Cut Flower Stencilover the top of dark gray card stock. I began, by using a larger Life Changing Blender Brush, to blend Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink through the stencil. I then used a smaller brush to blend Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink to the tips of the flower petals. I pulled off the stencil, and used a bit of watered downSparkle Paper Glitzto splatter the background.
While the splatter dried, I stamped the sentiment, from the Triple Trouble Stamp Set, onto pale green card stock, usingBlack Hybrid Ink. For the "magic in the night" portion, I masked off the additional portion of the sentiment with tape, when I was inking the stamp, and then removed the tape to stamp onto my card stock. I fussy cut the sentiment out, and began laying out my elements. The stenciled background was double matted with purple and black, before the colored image, and sentiment were added on top. Then the layered card front was added to a white card base made from heavyweight card stock. As a final touch, I added scattered gems from theGhost House Gem Mix.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Find more cards using products from the August Release over on my blog. Have a fantastic Tuesday!
