Hi there! On today’s post I’ll be sharing a Halloween themed card that I made for the Design Team call for Witt & Sass Stamp Company.
I hesitated at first but in the end I thought, why not give it a try and challenge myself. Witt & Sass provided a digital photo that we could print out and use it to make our cards to enter the call.
It sure was quite a challenge for me because I never made any Halloween themed cards before as I also don’t own any Halloween themed stamps.
So I printed out the digital file and decided to use the witch image. Colored it with Copic markers and to add extra details, I used several colors of Sakura Gelly Role Metallic pens. When done, I fussy cut the image out and set aside for now to work on the background.
I thought hard about what to have for background. I used perspective drawing and started to draw the floor with a pencil. I then went over the floor lines with Sakura Pigma Micron pen and not to have the floor looks like a wooden floor, I drew the lines a bit ‘fuzzy’, if you know what I mean haha. Did the same with both side of the walls. As for the back wall, I drew in a ‘shelf’ where I wanted to put potion bottles and a skull that I had drawn, colored and fussy cut out. I drew crack lines on the walls and ceiling to make it look a bit creepy haha.
I used Distress Oxide Iced Spruce to give the background a stone/concrete wall look, and then I used Black Soot and a small sponge dauber to add some burnt areas on the floor, walls and ceiling because of the fire. On the edge of my card panel I added Black Sooth as well.
Finally time to adhere all the images. Witch in the middle, skull and potions behind her on the shelf and I added two potion bottles on the floor. All adhered with Ranger Multi Medium Matte glue except for one potion bottle that I popped up with foam tape. Used Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter pen to add some glitter on the feathers, potions and whatever she is cooking. As the last step, I used Copic marker C3 around the witch image to give her a shadow effect. Adhered the card panel on my card base and I didn’t want to add sentiment on my master piece, so I decided to write the sentiment “What’s Cooking” on the inside.
Phew, thank you for staying till the end. This is my longest post so far! I hope you like my card and that it will give you some inspiration and have a great weekend!!
