Using A Soft Colour Pallette for Halloween Cards | Where is the Candy | Scrapbena Creations

Welcome back to the blog! My name is Jenn from Scrapbena Creations on YouTube. I am so happy to be back as a Guest Designer sharing another card using the Where is the Candy stamp set. I am absolutely in love with this kitty dressed up as a ghost. She looks so disgruntled about her empty treat bucket!


I thought I would use a soft palette of teal, purple and lime green to make this Halloween card. It is a little non-traditional, but I think it works! The images were coloured using a mix of copic and spectrum noir alcohol markers. I die cut a thought bubble and then stamped and masked the candy to make it look like they were piled on top of each other. I coloured the kitty and fussy cut the image leaving a small white border. Then, I popped the images up on foam adhesive and adhered them onto black glitter cardstock that was cut using a wonky stitched rectangle die by My Favorite Things.


For the background, I used Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron. I was aiming for a soft blend of all three colours that matched the coloured images. The final step was to stamp the sentiment. I cut the sentiment stamp so that I could stamp it out on one line without having to do any masking. Using versafine black onyx ink, I stamped the sentiment three times for a nice crisp black image.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by the blog. I hope you found some inspiration to use non-traditional colours when making holiday cards.

Happy crafting,
Jenn
