Hi Glitter Groupies!
It's Designer Jess
here today to share a fun idea for a Halloween card! I mashed up the Great Horned Owl DIGI stamp with the When Black Cats Prowl DIGI to create this elegant, yet spooky card!
This is a great technique that you can use for a variety of backgrounds. I started by printing off my digital images. I simply created the scene I wanted in word. I did flip the bat so they were opposites. That is the best part about digital stamps - you can manipulate them and build a scene!
Once I had it all printed, I punched out a moon shaped piece of cardstock to use as a mask over the owl - I didn't want to cover him up with the Embellishment Mousse! I then proceeded to simply add my layers of mousse - starting with my Orange Blush around the outside of the mask. I built my layers with a sponge from orange, to Coastal Surf, to Pacific Teal and finally the darkest, Seaspray Green! When I had all the blending where I wanted it, I removed my mask and finished off with the Lemon Sorbet to fill in the "moon" and behind the sentiment. As I had covered up the bats somewhat with mousse, I wanted them to re-pop a bit, so I used my Sakura Glue Pen to adhere some Black Ice Glitter. My final touch was the Glow in the Dark Embossing Powder which I added using the Sakura Glue pen. I added it to his eyes, and then made some "stars" in the sky.
Happy cardmaking! :) See you next time!
