I started this project by cutting two pieces of cardstock with a stitched frame die. Once from a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, and another from a piece of lime green cardstock. I always like to get a matching stitched or crossed frame pattern on the panels I will use to layer over my base layer. Next I used a hilly grass die to cut a hill from the green panel, then I turned it around and cut another small hill side from the left over portion. I decided I would like a third smaller piece to tuck in and used the remaining fragment of green paper.
I used Crushed Olive Distress Oxide ink to to blend along the grassy edges to create depth and interest. I then blended Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon, and Picked Raspberry to create my vibrant sky. I splattered with clean water, then white opaque ink, followed by black ink. I put them aside to dry while I prepared my images.
I heat embossed the sentiment into the center of the sky using gold embossing powder, before adhering my cemetery hillside. I loved creating this lumpy bumpy hillside, and using a variety of glues I created my cemetery with gravestones and circling bats. My little cuties fit perfectly across the bottom of image.
I mounted the completed card panel onto bold striped paper, and that onto a bright orange cardbase creating a fun bold scene. I finished it all off with a few gold sequins and am so happy with my final project
Thank you for dropping in and I hope that you choose to create some cute and spooky cards soon too!
