Trick Or Treat!0
Hello crafter's! How are you all?
Well, Halloween is slowly creeping up on us. I absolutely LOVE Halloween so I'm sure you'll see plenty of Halloween cards from me over the next couple of weeks.
I'll start with this simple Distress Oxide background card.
I started by prepping a card blank from 'Mandarin Orange Plain 240gsm' card. I trimmed the card down to make a UK A6 card blank. I popped this aside for later.
Next, I trimmed a piece of 'White Super Smooth 300gsm' card down to a panel approx 5mm around each edge than the card front.
Onto this, I blended my Distress Oxide Inks. I started with Fossilised Amber for the bottom 3rd. Into this, through the middle, I blended Spiced Marmalade and then into this, I blended Crackling Campfire.
Around the top half in only the outer edges, I added some Villainous Potion Distress Oxide to add some atmosphere to the scene.
Now I stamped my images.
I used my stamping platform for this as I usually do for larger images. Particularly silhouette images as they seldom give the desired finished after one impression.
I stamped my sentiment across the centre of the image. I used the stamping platform again. A Crisp image was hit or miss but with this size sentiment but I wasn't taking any chances after having spent time on this background!
All that was left was to mount my image onto the card blank I prepared earlier using foam tape. (Prior to doing so, I mounted this layer onto a black panel approximately 2mm larger round each edge than itself).
This completes the card.
Until next time, take care.
Love, dani xx
