Okay, I usually shy away from most spooky things, other then skulls (don’t ask me why I like skulls because I don’t know), but COME ON…what is not to like about this!! Spooky Mansons, crooked fence and some fun ghosts getting their BOOgy on! These are just a few of the latest products released from Whimsy Stamps.
WHOA, I did not color a single thing with my Copics! Here are a few reasons why I am so drawn to this card. The colors are so stark and contrasty. It is like doing a black and white card (which I love) but with a different color added. The layout of the card makes me happy, and THAT background stamp is swoon-alicious and perfect for s spooky mansion!
Creating this Card:
Okay, lets get to business with how I created the card, because I know you’re just “dying” to find out. Using my Tonic Studios Nuvo Jet Black embossing powder, I stamped and heat embossed the Vintage Wallpaper background onto yellow paper. I love the detail of this embossing powder.
Now this is where I got a little fancy. Taking the Hillside Slimline die, I die-cut the image in white and then chopped off the lower portion to fit on an A2 card front. I added part of the lower portion of the die cut back to the image so the border was complete, and then added part of a fence for balance. the windows were also added back to the mansion but prior to that I colored them in yellow (oops, guess I did use a tiny bit of ink)
The layers were then added to a black, white and yellow layer of cardstock to bring all the colors together.
