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.
Thanks for stopping by!
