Trick or Treat Ghosts

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this double slider card using the Gerda Steiner Designs A Boo for you stamp set:

  • create a double slider mechanism using the My Favorite Things Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX, watercolor paper, one of the Kesi'Art Encoches and a piece of plastic
  • add color with Distress Oxide Ink Wilted Violet and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • mist the panels with Pearlized Water for extra texture and shimmer
  • color the adorable little ghosts from the Gerda Steiner Designs A Boo for you set with Derwent Graphitint pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • decorate the bottom panel with candy from the Gerda Steiner Designs Where is the Candy? set using Versamark and WOW! Black Twinkle embossing glitter
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Delicata Black Shimmer onto the top panel
  • add some stars from the Gerda Steiner Designs Alien Invasion set with that same black ink 
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony Black are the final embellishment on the front and top panel
  • punch a star-shaped hole into the bottom panel and thread a piece of natural twine through it
  • cover a cardbase with patterned paper from the Graphic 45 An eerie Tale 6x6 paper pad before adhering the slider panel


I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,
