I created this card using the Witch Please stamp set, along with lots of heat embossing and some fun inky splatters.
I started with a piece of white cardstock, and covered the entire thing in black soot distress ink. Any water reactive ink would work well. Next I cut the hat away from the sentiment on my Witch Please stamp…Be brave and modify your stamps to fit your needs! After the paper completely dried, I clear heat embossed the hat multiple times to cover the entire panel.
Now for the fun part, splatters! First I splattered with plain water and dabbed it away to get the lifting of ink which creates lighter spots. Next I splattered with black liquid watercolor to get darker spots. Last I splattered with wilted violet distress oxide ink to bring some color into the background.
To create the focal image I heat embossed the entire Witch Please stamp using purple glitter embossing powder. I layered it multiple times to get a smooth dimensional look. I masked off the spider while doing this. I stamped the spider in versafine onyx black ink and clear heat embossed it so it would stand out from the purple hat. I used a black pen to color in the strap of the hat, then fussy cut around the image.
To assemble the card I layered the background onto purple cardstock border. I put craft foam behind the focal image for dimension, then created a cluster in the bottom right corner with 2 strips of washi.
To complete the front of the card I scattered lots of purple gems around to focal image for more sparkle and shine.
For the inside of the card I used stamps from Boo Crew. I stamped the spiders along the top using versafine onyx black with clear heat embossing. I stamped the sentiment the same way, but onto purple cardstock. I layered it on top of the same washi from the front of the card so it would coordinate.
I am so excited for spooky season! If you’re interested in these products, or anything else from Ink Road Stamps, you can use BECCA10 for 10% off your entire order.
