Have A Boo-Tiful Halloween
I knew as soon as I saw the challenge over at The Paper Players today that I would have to create a Halloween card. I love everything about fall...the pumpkins, the foliage, the cool, crisp air, and I especially loved trick or treating as a kid. As soon as the cool air would hit I knew I had to start thinking about a costume. Well, the characters in the Darcie's Bootiful Halloween stamp set have the most adorable costumes and decided to stamp all three of them to create a sweet little nighttime scene. I stamped each character out using Memento tuxedo black ink, colored them using Copic markers, fussy cut them out and edged them all with a black Memento dual tip marker so they would have nice clean edges. I stamped the trick or treat bag as well and adhered that onto one of the characters. I stamped the smallest pumpkin from Lawn Fawn's So Thankful stamp set, colored it with Copics, and fussy cut it as well. I die cut the trees from both of the tree dies from Paper Smooches in Stampin' UP black cardstock, and die cut the grass from a Paper Smooches die and colored it using Copic markers as well. I cut a white cardstock panel 1/4" smaller than my card base and used distress inks in black soot, faded jeans, and concord and then sprayed the whole thing with a mini mister to add some distressing. Once it dried I splattered some white ink on using Distress spray stain in picket fence. I die cut the moon from a Nestibilities round die, Copic colored it, and then stamped one of the adorable sentiments from the Darcie's stamp set. It turned out so cute!
