31 Nights of Halloween - Night 30

It's nearly the end of the month and time for those trick or treaters to have fun! It's almost the last day for your chance to win some prizes on the Whimsy Stamps 31 Nights of Halloween event.

Lots of inspiration from the design team all month long and lots of prizes to be won! Head to the main blog post for details:

My inspirational card was actually featured in Making Cards Magazine this month - my first ever publication! I was super excited! I do have to give credit to Deb Davis from Whimsy Stamps for the awesome stamp set she designed. I used the Halloweeners stamp set as my inspiration for this card.

I created my background panel using a variety of distress oxides - mowed lawn and crushed olive for the grass, wilted violet, chipped sapphire and black soot for the sky. I added some water splatters to the ink to create the 'star' effect in the sky and used the grass and cloud edger die set to cut the grass panels.

All of the characters were stamped from the Halloweeners stamp set and colored in using my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut them out.

The gravestones were cut using Dracula's Coffin die set. The larger one I only partially die cut to give me an interactive opening grave stone. I added some distressing to dirty up the gravestones and also did the same on the sentiment strip. The sentiment on the outside of the gravestone was from the Grim Reaper stamp set.

I added a ghost inside of the gravestone for a fun interactive element

This was such a fun card to make and I love how easily the scene came together.
