Special Guest - Michelle Bala

Hello there!
I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for 
Whimsy Stamps this month!!!!
I created two cards, and I used the stamp sets Candy Corn Dress Up and Going Batty
I also used some dies, Kinetic Curved Hills and Tombstone Tag.
And, of course a stencil, Sun Rays!

I started off by inking up some watercolor cardstock. 
For the night time sky I used distress oxide inks in shades 
tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon, and chipped sapphire. 
Than I placed the Sun Rays Stencil over the cardstock and 
brushed on some white ink. I added a few splashes of water.
For the field I used crushed olive, mowed lawn, and forest moss 
and added a few splashes of water and paint splatter.
  I die cut the field using Kinetic Curved Hills.
I die cut the tombstone with the Tombstone Tag Dies and
used hickory smoke and black soot to color it.
I wrote RIP with a gel pen.

I colored up the Candy Corn Dressup cuties with Copic Markers in these shades: 
W0, W1, W3, Y15, Y17, YR04, YR07
V12, V17, C1, C2, C5, C7
E25, and E29.
For the wood fence I used Wo, W2, W4, and W6.
I heat embossed the sentiments.
I added some shimmer using clear stickles.

For this next card I inked up the Sun Rays Stencil using wilted violet,
fossilized amber, and twisted citron.
Then splattered the same inks onto the background.

I colored the images from Going Batty with Copic Markers in the following shades:
V12, V17, Y13, Y17, YG21, YG25
BG11, E31, E33, W00, W1, W6
E70, E71, E74, E79, E93, W00, W1.
I used hickory smoke to create a base.
I added some clear stickles for shimmer and some sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
