I had a little more Halloween fun this week, playing with an idea that popped into my head as soon as I saw the new ODDBALL GHOST stamp. You see last year brought us the SQUIDGY GHOST stamp, and they seemed like a perfect pair to me! The bored/fatigued/so over it older sibling or parent and the excitable youngster off trick or treating.
I stamped with a light ink for the “no line” look and masked the images before inking the background using Distress Oxides. The images were coloured using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and Sansodor blending solution. I added the sentiment that comes in the Oddball Mummy Girl stamp set, stamping it in Versamark ink and heat embossing using Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
That’s it from me for today! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.
We are starting our hockey season in this house and my 2 goalies are so busy which means.. I am constantly in the car or freezing in an arena LOL.. but we are used to it.. and love it 🙂 What are you up to?
This week’s bellarific friday is so much fun and full of inspiration!
Hey hey, Elainebella here with the giant spotlight! This week I’m continuing the autumn/Halloween theme with a look at those adorable Squidgy Trick or Treaters! Love these little guys (and I may have been playing with them again myself, so watch out for a brand new card this Saturday).
Happy Monday! Elaineabella here with a card to share today. I decided to play with the Haunted House stamp again, giving it a spookier look this time around.
Love this stamp! I stamped in a pale ink, then coloured it using Copic markers, finishing off with Polychromos coloured pencils (mostly Dark Sepia) to add extra texture and shadows. The background is Copics, with some Colourless Blender splatter, and Distress Ink in Black Soot at the edges to create the vignette effect.
The sentiment is from the fab Fall Sentiment Set, heat embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
In the new Holiday 2018 release there are a couple of new stamp sets that offer some great options for creating fun seasonal card designs. The FALL WINDOW STAMP SET and WINTER WINDOW STAMP SET both include two sizes of the same window design, and a sentiment to go with them. In the release samples we saw some beautiful card designs featuring the larger version of each as the main focal point.
The mini versions are great to use on smaller cards, on tags, or even better, to create scenes! Emily’s vision was that these stamps would work to set the scene for our character stamps, and today I’m here to show you how beautifully they work for this purpose. I opted to play with the Fall Window set, and an older but still utterly gorgeous character stamp – Tiny Townie Layla loves Leaves.
I’m a little nutty, so I decided to give myself an extra challenge and stamp my scene in a light ink to do some “no line” colouring. I also wanted to go for a more muted, storybook look, so I tried to create a softer look with my pencil colouring.
I coloured the scene using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and Sansodor blending solution.
I hope this has given you a little inspiration for using the new window stamp sets! Tell me – which other characters do you think would be perfect in a scene like this? Give me some suggestions for a scene using the Winter Window set!
