Hey everyone it's Lisa with you today this first day of October. (Can you believe it?!!) Now I must admit, I'm really not a fan of Halloween, but I love the colors of Autumn AND Halloween and I thought that breaking out my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils for a sweet card would be just the thing.
Here are the steps to make this cute Halloween card:
1. Stamp images using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black onto watercolor paper.
2. Using select colors from Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils carefully color in images. *Tip - When coloring in images, be "loose" with color placement. Start with darker colors at bottom and top, then work lighter colors towards the center. This works best for round images.
3. With Deluxe Water Brush go over the penciled in areas to create a blended, watercolored look. Work from bottom to center and from top to center. Dab off excess water with paper towel, if necessary. Add additional color if desired, and re-wet/blend. Be careful not to over-saturate the paper.
4. Stamp small spider with black pigment ink, heat set with clear embossing powder.
5. Die-cut all images with matching dies.
6. Stamp sentiment on to white paper with black pigment ink, heat set with clear embossing powder.
7. Attach foam squares to the backs of pumpkins and spider. Arrange and attach all pieces to pre-cut piece of 4" x 4" patterned paper.
8. Draw curly web for spider using Essential PITT Artist Pen.
9. Adhere Sentiment.
10. Card base is standard A2 sized black card stock folded on the horizontal edge. White card stock trimmed ⅛" smaller is adhered to the black card base. A piece of purple glitter cardstock is trimmed to 2" wide and 5⅜". This piece is adhered to the lower portion of the white cardstock. The patterned paper square (with the pumpkins, ghost, and spider) is adhered on top of that.
This is a super simple, super sweet card that really packs a punch to show off those Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.
Thanks so much for joining me today on this spook-tacular October 1st. ;)
