Inked Background Halloween Card

Hi! Today I am sharing a spooky Halloween card. To create the background I used Distress Oxide inks and Copic Markers.


First I cut a circle and stuck it down on the card front using removable glue. This will be the moon. Then, on the top section of the card, I used Seedless Preserves and on the bottom I used Carved Pumpkin with some Gathered Twigs right at the end. I kept applying the colours until I was happy with them. Then I used some Dylusions white linen ink spray and Copic opaqu white pigment to add white 'stars'. I opened the dylusions bottle and used the 'wand' to flick the white colour, and I used a very wet paintbrush with the copic pigment ink. The pigment ink stays much whiter than the ink spray when it dries.


I then used Copic Markers to colour in the moon.


I cut a selection of die cuts, all of which are from La-La Land Crafts. I cut the tree from Buff card and inked it with Ground Espresso oxide ink.



I cut a BOO!, a bat, and fence from plain black card, and some ghosts from plain white card. I also inked the ghosts with the Ground Espresso ink. Then I layered up all my spooky elements on the card front. I added a layer of purple card behind the scene, then another layer of orange card


Adhere the whole card front down onto a black card base. Add some white card on the inside and embellish to coordinate with the front.


That's it from me for today. Be sure to share your makes over on our Facebook Community group.
