A Halloween Card

Today I have a Halloween card to share. I made it for the current Lawnscaping Challenge Halloween or Color Combo:


Here it is:


I started with a panel of watercolor paper, and inked it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and an ink blending tool, applying the ink heavier onto the bottom part and softer on the top part to create a gradient background. Then I used the cole's ABCs dies to die-cut letters from black card stock and adhered them to the panel. Now I stamped the bats and the spider with her net and colored them with Copics. The panel was adhered to a card base that I inked up with orange Distress Ink. Finally I added some black sequins. I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

supplies:
Lawn Fawn heepie jeebies, trick or treat, cole's ABCs cuts - Ranger Distress Inks - Copic markers - black sequins
