Hello and welcome back!
Today marks the start of a brand new Inky Paws Challenge! I don’t know about you, but I am ready for fall, and this challenge made me even more excited for fall to begin!
I started my card by stamping a few of the images from the new Count Newton Stamp Set onto a piece of Hammermill 110# paper. Then, I colored my images using my Copics in these colors:
Newton: 100, W8, W6, W5, W3
Gravestones: C6, C4, BV34, BV23, BV11
Cape: V09, V17, V15, V01
After coloring, I cut out my images using the coordinating dies.
To build my spooky graveyard scene, I made a purple night sky by blending Distress Oxides in the colors Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, and Dusty Concord onto a piece of white card stock cut to 4.25 x 5.5 inches. Next, I cut two hills using the Land Borders Die Set and ink blended those with Rustic Wilderness and Black Soot Distress Oxides.
I wanted to add a little more to my scene, both to fill the space and to add a little more spook, so I cut a few birch trees from the Forest Scene Builder Die Set out of white card stock. Instead of inking the trees up in a “traditional” manner, I splattered some watered down Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide, as well as some silver glitter ink.
To put my card together, I glued the trees, the hill farther back in the scene, and the gravestones on that hill directly onto the background. The front hill, Count Newton, and gravestones were all popped up with foam tape to create a little more depth. To finish it off, I heat embossed the sentiment “You can count on me!” right next to the vampire kitty.
Thanks for stopping by!
