A Frightful Halloween

Having a frightfully fun time stamping….

White cardstock die cuts of Spellbinders Label Three create the base of the card as well as the elevated frame.

The frame was completed by die-cutting a square from the center and stamping Crystal Pattern in Teal Zeal Memento ink. 

Tip/Hint:  For a two-tone effect, the dots on the top and bottom of the frame were colored with a black Glaze pen.

After the Moonlight Owls were stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder they were colored with Copics and then fussy cut.  The left side of the branch was glued to the back of the frame.

For the background, a circular mask was used to protect the area that would become the moon while the sky was distressed with Memento inks.  The branches from Hoot of A Time were stamped over the inks in London Fog Memento. 

TIP/HINT:  A reverse or negative mask is helpful to protect the background while the exposed area is being inked.   For this sample, a circle was punched from a large square of Judi Kins Eclipse Tape which provided both the positive and negative portions.    

To finish the design, the sentiment and bat from Hoot of A Time were used to accent the moon.
