Happy Haunting – Inky Paws 182


Hello and welcome back!

Today is the beginning of a new Inky Paws Color Challenge! This color palette is perfect for the start of fall and definitely got me excited for the new season!

For my card today, I created a spooky woodland scene using a few dies from Newton’s Nook.

To start, I stamped and colored the image from the new Halloween Pile Stamp Set using my Copic markers. Here are the colors I used:

Cat: 100, W8, W6, W5, W3

Dog: E13, E11, E51, E50

Witch Hat: C8, C6, C5, C3

Pumpkin Pail: YR27, YR24, YR21

Ghost Costume: W3 and W1

After coloring the image, I cut it out using the coordinating dies. 

To create my scene background, I started by cutting a small circle from the Circle Frames Die Set out of a piece of masking paper. Using the negative piece (the piece with the circle opening), I ink blended using Scattered Straw and Dried Marigold Distress Oxides. I removed the negative mask and placed the circle mask over the moon. To create the sky, I ink blended with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, and Black Soot Distress Oxides, starting with the lightest color around the moon and blending out. 

Next, I cut a hill using the Land Borders Die Set, as well as a few birch trees from the Forest Scene Builder Die Set out of white card stock. For the hill, I ink blended using Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, and Ground Espresso Distress Oxides. For the trees, I blended Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress Oxides, keeping the areas closer to the moon lighter to give the illusion of light. 

To finish my card, I adhered everything together and popped the stamped image up on foam before placing it in the center. For my sentiment, I heat embossed “Happy Haunting” from the Spiderweb Oval Die Set onto the hill. 

As a finishing touch, I stamped and die cut a few bats from the Halloween Pile Stamp Set and adhered them around the scene.

I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge for a chance to win $20 to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!
