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.
