Hello everyone! Hope you had a wonderful start to a new week. After a great week of HOME inspiration, we are ready for a new challenge over at CASology! Here is this week’s cue card:
I felt kinda nervous with Halloween quickly approaching since I’ve had a hard time making a Halloween card this year. But when I saw the cue word, I thought it was perfect timing to give it a try. Without further ado, here is what I came up with:
The idea for this card started with my desire to create a single layer card–the easiest card to send through the mail to my friends. Since I didn’t own any ghost stamps, I used a free clip art image that I found online and printed it out to create a mask. Not the quickest way to get the image, but it sure was fun to peel it off later after inking! Then I chose a girl image from In My Heart stamp set to create a little scene to look like a girl sitting on the ground waiting for a fun Halloween night. Then the cute ghost came to surprise her with all the excitement. Hope you get what scene I wanted to create on my card.
Actually this was the first card that I made for CASology ghost challenge. But I didn’t like the way it turned out with googly eyes on the ghost. I know it looks okay, but not perfect, right? By the way, I added some shadow on the ground with Copic grey markers, but it’s a shame that my camera failed to catch the awesome details on the ground.
This is how I made my card. 1)Stamp the girl from In My Heart stamp set by Mama Elephant with Memento Tuxedo black ink. 2)Color the image with Copic markers. 3)Make an outline for a ground using Copic Multiliner. Then create some shadow to the ground with Copic markers W0, N1. 4)Print out a ghost image and then cut it out to create a mask. 5)Cover the mask over the card front. Then apply color using a blending tool and Distress Ink Black Soot. 6)Stamp the sentiment from Just Hello stamp set by Neat&Tangled.
