OMG Treats with Carol

October 7, 2020

Shop Ink Road Stamps and use code Carol10 to get 10% off your order.

Let’s jump into it!

For this card, I didn’t have ANY spooky stamps. But, what I did have was a mediocre talent for water coloring, ink blending, and die cutting. Cha-ching!

I started with freehand watercoloring a pumpkin on some watercolor paper. It took several attempts, and I ultimately didn’t like the the end result, that I used gel pen and a Pilot G2 extra fine point pen. Like I always say: Hate your design? Just add some shading! That ought to do the trick! (I don’t always say that. In fact, that’s the first time I’ve ever…. let’s move on).

Since the card was looking a little plain, I added some texture by die cutting and embossing a specialty foil paper. I also took the liberty to create my own spider web stencil! I ink blended, and die cut, and did some splatters. I was going for a pretty messy, spooky look.

As a final touch, I added a heat embossed sentiment from the Fur Babies stamp set. I also added some extra texture with stamps from the Full Circle stamp set.

I love these sets so much, because they are SO versatile! Stay tuned for some more spoopy, versatile fun with these sets!

I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific challenge and it does indeed give us some fodder for thought. Nevertheless, through what I have personally seen, I really wish as the commentary pack on that folks keep on point and don’t start on a tirade involving some other news du jour. Yet, thank you for this exceptional point and whilst I do not necessarily agree with this in totality, I regard the point of view.

Most of the things you claim happens to be astonishingly accurate and it makes me ponder why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This particular piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this subject matter goes. But there is actually just one issue I am not too comfy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the issue, allow me see just what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Very well done.
