So you may have wondered (or not, lol) why I haven't posted for awhile, I have been so busy lately I haven't had much time for crafting. See I told you this would be a challenge for me to get 30 projects done by Sept. 15th. I have family coming to visit for a couple of weeks, work, classes to prep and a whole list of other things that need to be done. Where does the time go?
Well I have managed to get a couple of projects done and after I finish this post I have to go prep for the class I am teaching at Scrap Arts tomorrow. Once that is done I hope to be able to get at least 2 more cards done.
First of all I think this card should count as at least 2 projects (but I won't). It took a very long time to plan and make. I used black & dahlia card stock. The other was done on white card stock. I measured how big each panel would be and then cut one large piece of white. I inked the paper with lavender, cyan, midnight and black color box inks. I masked the moon but decided I wanted it to stand out, so I cut out a second circle and inked it with momento dandelion and cantaloupe. The stamps are from Basic Grey, Crafty Secrets & Inkadinkado. The trees, bats & cat were stamped with black momento ink. The haunted house was stamped with Archival black ink and the windows were colored with cantaloupe momento marker, I added a few accents with grey marker, white gel pen and silver marker. I also added some black Archival ink to the ground level of the card to add depth.
The other card I did with all inks as well. I used a brayer to apply red color box ink to white card stock. I then sponged on more red as well as gold brilliance and black momento ink. I used a few different stamp sets for this one as well, stampin' up grunge rock, basic grey and I'm not sure of the third set (I don't have the packaging anymore).
Well I better go get my class prepped for tomorrow and hopefully I'll have another post for tomorrow or Sunday. Until then, happy crafting and have a great weekend.
