Hi Everyone! I am back from Copic Boot Camp, and I’ve actually gotten several cards completed the last couple of days. Today I wanted to share this Spooky Hollow Halloween card I created using Catherine Pooler stamps and inks. You know how much I love an awesome blended ink scene with some dramatic dark effects!
I began by stamping the house and moon on Inkadinkadoo masking paper, and then fussy cut them both. Then I planned where I would stamp everything, placed my masks on Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock, and began blending Catherine Pooler inks onto the scene. (For an in-depth video on creating this spooky night sky on a previous card, click HERE.)
I began the night sky by softly blending It’s A Boy ink over the the entire sky, and then removed the moon so that I could blend the clouds over it for a dramatic effect. After blending the night sky and grassy hillside, I pulled up the house mask and colored with Copic markers. Next I used VersaFine Clair inks to stamp all of the solid images, and then blended nocturne ink around the edges to frame the picture.
Finally, I used a charcoal pencil and blended shadows, and added gel pen for highlights and spooky eyes in the dark. So what do you think? Isn’t this a spooky, cute stamp set? I love the blended background with the Copic colored haunted house. Have you completed all of your Halloween cards? I probably won’t have time to complete everything I had planned, but I’m happy with this one!
Love and crafty hugs!
