31 Nights of Halloween - Night 17 - Special Guest Rebecca Rapanaro

Let's give a warm welcome to Rebecca Rapanaro as she shares some spooky, Halloween inspiration with us tonight!

 It’s almost Halloween and I could not be more excited! I know, I know, it’s not for everyone, but the lovely folks over at Whimsy Stamps sure do share my love of all that is creepy! Right now, they have their Annual 31 nights of Halloween Blog Celebration! There are prizes to be won, and it’s just plain fun, Fun, FUN! You know what else is fun? I get to guest design this month making scary cards ooooh….. Sort of like the one above - creepy dolls and houses. Did that curtain just move? Did you hear that? Oh my, before I never sleep again…….

I used an assortment of my favorite new and old stamps and dies to create this (hopefully) very macabre scene! Before I get into just how I created this scene, I just want to mention the designer of these gorgeous stamps and dies, Deb Davis. You are totally awesome, and thank you always for creating such amazing images and characters that have found a home in my imagination and heart.

To create this scene, I used the dolly from Dead Dolly; the house from Cute But Psycho; and the fence, branches, and crow from Attempted Murder.  After stamping my scene, I coloured alot.  I have listed the colors below :

Copic ColoursW3, W0, N2, T2, T0, T3, YG91, BV23, E000, W2, BV000, 0, E19, E37, G94, G46, G24, YG67, YG06, B66, B32, E49, R02, BV04, E21, B97, V17, E87 
Prismacolors: 306, 905, 936, 935, 993, 1081

I also used a Micron 01 pen and a Copic Multiliner to create the cracks in the doll's body. Distress inks were used, as well as a white Gelly Roll pen for highlights. I used fun foam to mount the fence, and I simply made a mask to create the moon.  I added a die-cut sentiment from the Haunted Words Die Set.  "Vacancy" is from the Grave Epitaphs set.

Thank you so much for dropping by! I hope you may have found some inspiration in creating a creepy card. If you would like to shop where I shop, all Whimsy products listed are affiliate links. Hoping you have a lovely day!
