B&W Haunted House Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Yesterday was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this one layer, Black and White, Haunted House Card.

To create this card I used stamps from a Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set. 

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper and created my spooky scene directly on the card base.

First I stamped a haunted house, then I drew Moon with fine liner and handmade circle stencil and lastly stamped bats all over the card. 

Next up was coloring. I LOOOOVE Black & White photos and love to color B&W. I colored my card in watercolor technique using only Distress Inks Black Soot. After coloring I left the card to dry on air.

I'm very satisfied with my coloring on this card. :o)

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")

Wedding Card no. #3 (Fairy Tale Challenge #179)

Hi everyone! :o)

On Tuesday, October 24th, a new challenge has started over at Fairy Tale Challenge BlogI had such a crazy week I didn't manage to post here on my blog earlier.

Our theme for this fortnight is #179, Nicht mehr als 4 / Not more than 4. Use 4 or less items on your handmade projects, something like this:
  • image, design paper, colors, sequins
  • image, embossing folder, paper
  • design paper, ribbon, glue etc.

This time our lucky winner will win this lovely mini hippo stamp set.

And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Wedding Card.

4 items I used on my project are: image, white paper, colors and Wink of Stella.

I used BEAUTIFUL Stamping Bella 'uptown couple BRETT and BRENDA get married' rubber stamp. This is my third take on this stamp. If you like, you can find my two previous cards using this image here and here.

I stamped the image on a watercolor paper, left it dry for couple minutes and colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After coloring and drying, I fussy cut the image, traced edges with a fibre-tip pen and softened the image on a soft working mat using a stylus ball. The image curled a bit.

I stamped another image on a white top folded card base and colored the whole image in black with the black fibre-tip pen. Before I stamped the image, I printed couple's names (for whom I was making this card) inside the card.

I glued the colored image over the image colored in black.

As a finishing touch, I rounded two opposite corners with paper puncher and covered bride's shoes, bouquet and heart with Clear Wink of Stella. :o)
