I made this card last week…it’s been a bit crazy so I haven’t had a chance to post it till now. Practising more Copic coloring…and finding that coloring black hair is challenging. It’s so easy to make it look like gray hair instead of black. Not a big deal though, we’re just doing this for fun, right? 🙂

Anyway, enjoy the video! 🙂


A Halloween Card September 13, 2010

I had so much fun creating this card! It uses a stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Heebie Jeebies, and let me just say, ADORABLE! 🙂

I stamped the bats onto black cardstock with VersaMark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then to give it a misty look, I swept Shimmer Paint (Frost White) across the card. The bats acted as a resist to the paint creating a fun effect. The sentiment came from the same set, however its in the middle of a spiderweb, so I used a Stampin’ Up marker to color just the sentiment. I punched it out and layered it on a scallop oval. Finished the card off with the striped and polka dot ribbons, and voila! A fun Halloween card, all ready for the mail.

Supplies: Cardstock, Shimmer Paint, embossing powder, punches (Stampin’ Up). Heebie Jeebies stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Ribbon (Joanns).
