We have a fun Get Spooked Challenge on the Ways to Use It (WT816) today. So I think this card will definitely fit right in. For the bg, I used the Wrinkle Free Distress tech on some lightweight watercolor paper using some yellow, orange & purple Distress inks.

When it dried, I used the splatter bg to stamp over it w/ gold ink & used gold embossing powder. Then I put the panel in my Misti & stamped the graveyard & crow.  Leaving the panel in place, I put the white layer w/ the oval cut out on top & stamped the grim reaper, took the white panel off & stamped him again. The tombstone & ghost were stamped on white & fussy cut.

Here’s the inside:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC776), we are headed to Halloween Costumes. Some really spooky stuff there & I was inspired by THIS picture.

For my spooky scene, I die cut the grey bg & all the crows, bats, tree & owl out of black. The moon is just a largish yellow circle & I sponged some orange ink around the edges. The white fence & tombstones were die cut & I wrote RIP on a few of them & added cracks to others (these are all part of the Spooky House die) . I had a sponged piece of yellow/orange & die cut the pumpkin out of it. For the clouds at the top, I sponged on some picket fence Distress ink on the edges in order to have them show up a little more. Then it was just a matter of piecing everything all together. The only stamping on this was the greeting & I sponged the edges of it, too. The eyes were added on the crows & bats using a white Posca paint pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to guest host the Watercolor Wednesday Challenge (WCW018) on Splitcoast. The technique I chose is Watercolor on embossed paper. I thought it looked interesting but easy enough for everyone.

Since I wanted to make a Halloween card, I chose a couple of Halloween themed embossing folders to go w/ my cute little die cut owl. I embossed the large bg w/ the wordy folder then followed the instructions on the video using bright, Halloween colors of my Peerless watercolors. After it dried, I thought the words didn’t really pack the punch I wanted so I inked the inside of the folder w/ black soot Distress oxide ink & embossed the watercolored bg again. Much better! Now the words really show up.

I did the same for the little orange Wicked strip & perched my owl on it.
