Halloween Fun

Halloween is one of my two favorite holidays.......of course Christmas is the other. I have soooooo many halloween stamps but I always need to add another. Maybe these will become part of your collection.

Using Distress inks from Ranger inks I created some wonderful background papers. These were perfect for making into halloween cards. Well I guess they are not really cards, maybe they should be called creations.
This one is my favorite. Let me know what you think. I would love to read some comments.

Halloween Shaker Card

First I stamped using black ink on white cardstock the spider web, the I used my copic markers and airbrushed the orange background. This could also be done with stipple brushes or sponges.

Using black in stamp globe G3374 on white cardstock and cut out the opening of the globe.

stamp globe again on a piece of acetate or window plastic using permnament black ink. You may need to heat set depending on the ink you use.

Color the base of the globe using copic marker.

Stamp witch shoes, witch hat and broom. Colored with copic markers, cut out and set aside

These will be attached to the outside of the finished card using foam mounting tape.

I used double stick adhesive to attach the stamped acetate globe behind the first cut out stamped globe. Then place double stick foam tape around the opening of the globe. This will give you a clearance around the globe for placing some fun things inside so they can move around.

Now for the finished card.................. I hope you enjoy it. The airbrushing to the front of the finished card did not show up very well.
