Your Next Stamp - Happy Haunting

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing another card that I made as a guest designer for Your Next Stamp.

I love making Halloween cards and Your Next Stamp has lots of fabulous Halloween stamps and dies!  I decided to use a few different sets to make this Halloween card.  I started my card by inking the background.  I diecut some grassy slopes and blended on some Forest Moss Distress Oxide Ink; I thinned some black acrylic paint and spattered that onto the slopes using a small paint brush.  For the night sky, I used Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered both white and black acrylic paint that I thinned with water onto the night sky.  I chose images from the Halloween Phoebe and Waddles Trick or Treat stamp sets.  I stamped the images, colored them with copics, and diecut them with the coordinating dies.  I also diecut some trees from black cardstock using the Spooky Halloween Scene Die Set.  I diecut the moon using a circle die and sponged it with distress oxide inks (sorry, I neglected to jot down the inks I used for the moon).  I used a white gel pen to add some highlights and I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the penguins' beaks and feet.  I adhered some of the images directly to the card and I used foam tape on some of them for added interest and dimension. 

I want to thank Karen and Julie for having me guest for them, it was so much fun! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
