Stamp It Saturday: Oddball & Squidgy Ghost Scene

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.

Stamping Bella Oddball & Squidgy Ghost Scene Card

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.

Marker Geek Monday: Spooky Haunted House Card

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.

Copic Markers Used:

Ground: BG93,BG96,BG99 Sky: BV29,BG78,BG75,BG57 Door/Windows: BV25,BV29,FV2 Wood: E43,E44,E47 Walls: BG70,BG93,BG96 Roof Tiles: C4,C6,C9

That’s it from me for today! Catch you tomorrow for Spotlight Tuesday.
