Creep It Real

Hello friends! Can you believe it is Halloween in a week? It seems as if summer was just here and now it is gone. Today I am sharing with you three cards that I made with the Hedgehog Hollow October Subscription box and Ink Road Stamps.

For these cards I used pigmented powder! You can find the one in Midnight black here .Lightly mist the substrate first:

 Sprinkle on the pigment:

 Mist again:

 Soak up any excess with a paper towel

 To color in the pumkin on water color paper use three colors of Aqua Flow Pens by Tonic Studios. Layer the color from lightest to darkest.

 Don’t forget the stems!

 Mist with water:

 Lay a papertowel over image to dillute color and pick up extra moisture.

 Add Glitter Gloss as accent:

 I used pop dots to add to my card:

  I used Nuvo Dew Drops on the pumpkins features.

 I also created a web with the Dew Drops.

 Using the same technique I created two quick cards:

Here is a short tutorial on how to use the Aqua Flow Markers:

Get Batty!

I have a friend who likes bats! I thought a card featuring bats with Dracula and a fun batty sentiment would be perfect for her!  Everything I used on this card is from the Halloween inspirational kit by Brutus Monroe. I started off with the purple card base and layered the bat transparency over it. Next I stamped Dracula, colored him in with Studio 71 colored pencils and cut him out using my Scan n Cut. I trimmed a piece of ribbon and layered the sentiment over it. I placed the ribbon sentiment on the card first followed by Dracula on pop dots. I tucked in two acrylic bats around him to finish the card off.

I am sad to say that this box is sold out, however Brutus Monroe is now offering monthly subscription boxes so you never have to miss out again! Check them out at the Brutus Monroe Website

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
