Hello spooky artists! This is Rachel again and I'm here to share this quick Halloween card. Halloween is only 10 days away! I hope your house is decorated and your candy bowls are full :)
I started with a card base that I had very lightly Gesso'd, and blended Silver Ice and Metallic Icing Gelatos® throughout the background. The Design Memory Craft Gesso is great to make cardstock sturdier and more water resistant, as well as giving the Gelatos® a non-porous surface to blend.
Next, I mixed the Cinnamon Gelatos® Color of the Week with some Design Memory Craft Glaze medium. I added a very thick and somewhat messy large strip of the Glaze across the card. When the Glaze dried it left an almost velvety look and feel to my card. It is such an easy way to make a big impact on a card!
I really wanted this card to be all about the metallic colors that match so perfectly with Cinnamon Gelatos®. So obviously Gold Texture Luxe™ through a Mixed Media 102 Stencil was the next best choice! Have I mentioned already how much I love this stuff?! Because I love Gold Texture Luxe™. A lot.
Now it's time to add the details to finish the card. I die cut a circle frame from some Halloween patterned paper to anchor my creepy boy bat stamped image. The stamp is colored with Art Grip® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and topped with some Glass Bead Glitter Gel. For the sentiment I used Mixed Media 301 Stencils with Black Licorice Gelatos® to spell the word "BOO!".
Thanks for stopping in! I hope you use this weekend to finish off your fun autumn and Halloween cards!
