The MFT August Release Countdown is almost over and today, for Day 2, I’m sharing a Halloween card with a spooky haunted house and some brave trick or treaters.
I started by adhering a 5/8″ (1,5cm) circle out of masking paper to the left upper corner of my huge 6.25″ x 5″ (15,8cm x 12,7cm) panel. Then I did some ink blending with Faded Jeans, Vilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide Inks.
Next, I used one of the dies from the Slimline Grassy Hills Die-namics to die cut a 6 1/4″ x 2 3/8″ panel (15,8cm x 6cm), which I ink blended with Evergreen Bough and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Inks. Lastly I cut a 6 1/4″ x 7/8″ (15,8cm x 2,4cm) strip of Gravel Gray Card Stock which I splattered with some dilluted Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. I also heat embossed the sentiment from the Boo Crew stamp set on it in white.
The haunted house
It was a lot of fun to die cut, color and assemble the elements from the Haunted House Die-namics. I used Gravel Gray, Kraft, Electric Red and Smooth White card stock backed with scor tape for it. I also adhered a piece of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock behind it to make it look dark and abandoned.
To complete the scenery, I used the Spooky Fence Die-namics to die cut a fence out of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock backed with Stick-It adhesive. Before adhering it to my panel, I rubbed some silver pigment ink on it to give it a metallic finish.
Next I stamped the cute trick-or-treaters from the Boo Crew stamp set on some Copic friendly card stock, die cut them with the matching dies and colored them with the following Copic markers:
- Mummy: E35, E33 (skin), R37, R35, Y15, BG11 (bucket), C3, C00, E50 (bandages)
- Frankie: E11, E21, E000, G12 (skin), YR27, YR24,YR21 (hair), BG13, BG11, B97, B95, B93, B91, Y15, Y13 (clothes)
- Dracula: E21, E00, R20 (skin), W10, W7 (hair), R39, R37 (cape), W10, W7, C2, B97, B95, B93, B91, C2 (clothes)
- Witch: E53, E51, R20 (skin), G16, G14, G12 (hair), BV04, BV01, BV00, W10, W7, YR65 (costume), E55, E53 (broom)
- Jack-o-lantern: YR27, YR68, YR65, W10
- Candy: Y17, Y15, BG13, BG11, YR65
Lastly, I popped them up with some thin foam squares and added Glossy Accents to their eyes. That’s it for today folks! I hope you enjoyed this crafty session… Have you checked out all of today’s featured products at the MFT Blog? Do you have any favorites yet?
