Boo to You Wowza Wednesday #10


BOO to you!  This card is so fun.  I worked really hard on this one for you guys.  I was aiming to do some fun techniques that I don't use all the time.  I definitely succeeded.  I used the brayering technique to create a layered effect in the sky and then flicked water onto the paper to fade the top layer of ink out.  It worked out quite nicely.  I used bats from two different stamp sets to get my different size bats.  


Tips & Tricks
  • The Cracks - To create the cracks in the gravestone I used a basic black marker and drew the lines free hand.  Then I used a paint brush dipped in basic gray ink to smudge ink over the lines that I drew.  This gives the cracks a more realistic look.
  • The Boo - I cut the Boo letters from the Little Letters Die Cuts and inked them in Basic Gray ink.
  • The Ghost - I lightly inked the ghost in smoky slate ink.  He was too bright white without some ink on him.  I stamped his face using smoky slate also, from the Fall Fest stamp set.

Howdy - Creative Challenge Monday CCC18

Howdy Ya'll... Welcome to Creative Challenge Monday, this is CCC18.  I was inspired to do a country card for our neighbors.  They have cows and my hubby occasionally takes care of them and my sweet little girl goes for visits to their home.  They are really sweet people and have been very good to us.  I wanted to give them a Thank You card for a CD of photos that they gave me.  Here are a couple of the photos from the CD, this is Macie with the neighbor.  They are checking out the new baby calf.
We also have a Facebook group now at Creative Challenge Club.  Join us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/creativechallengeclub/


Here is the sketch challenge.  We would love to have you play along.  Come on over to Creative Challenge Club and participate with us.

Here is my whole card

Tips & Tricks
  • Stampin on Color card stock - Sometimes I forget that I can stamp an outline image right onto color card stock.  This is how I did the cowboy hat.  I really love how it looks too.  Then I just added a little darker color on the band of the hat with a crumb cake blendabilities marker.
  • Horseshoes - I got the silver horseshoes by coloring with my silver metallic marker and then stamping over it.  You can also stamp the image first and then color in with the marker.  If you do it this way you have to be careful not to color over the black outline.
