Inky Mummy

We made some great cards this month in my class at Scrapp'n Savvy. Today I am sharing the Halloween card we did. I wanted to teach how to create a beautiful background using various colors of ink. For this card, we started with just a white piece of cardstock and ended up with this fun spooky background. We punched a circle out of a sticky note and stuck it on where we wanted the moon to be. Then using four colors of Distress Inks- Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Crushed Olive and Pine Needles, we sponged around the circle getting darker the further from the moon. next we filled in space with the bats and tree images stamped in black ink and added the sentiment. The adorable mummy is a digi image from Tiddlyinks called Be My Mummy. I absolutely love Christie's images- they are sooo cute! We colored him with Copics- W1, W3, E02, YG11, cut him out and added him over the fence die with pop dots. The little pumpkin treat pail is from another stamp set. Isn't a fun card?
