Where is the Candy | Distress Background | Scrapbena Creations

September 21, 2017 0 Comments

Hello, it is Jenn from Scrapbena Creations on YouTube. I am back with another card as a Guest Designer. This time I am using the adorable too cute to spook stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs called Where is the Candy. I chose the cat and dog in costumes images for this scene card. The fence and bats were from a My Favourite Things stamp set called Frightful Friends, but you can use whatever you have in your stash!


My watercolour paper of choice is Canson XL watercolour paper because it is high quality and affordable. I stamped out the images with Versafine Black Onyx ink and created masks to make an outdoor Halloween scene. The moon was created using a circle punch with full adhesive post-it note paper, which I used for all of the masks. Once everything was masked, I used Distress Inks to create the background. I love purples for Halloween night scenes. From lightest to darkest, I used shaded lilac, wilted violet, seedless preserves and black soot. For the ground, I used bundled sage with a tiny bit of black soot. I spritzed some water over the entire scene with the masks still on the images and blotted it with a paper towel for an amazing textured background.


I watercoloured the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I list the colours used in my process video, which you can watch by clicking the play button on the image below.




Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you enjoyed this card and it inspires you to make some cute Halloween cards. Happy crafting.
