It's less than six weeks to October, which is the month of Halloween, so it's not too early to get started on Halloween cards. Right?
Perhaps I'm delusional and have jumped the gun on this one, but nevertheless, Halloween cards are what I have to post for the next few days.
I love three of the Halloween cards I've made. LOVE them.
I never say that about Halloween cards. So here's the first, which includes actual sponging and masking. If you get some inspiration to get a head-start on Halloween, so much the better.
This large tree stamp from PSX is generally hard for me to work with, seeing as it leaves little space for white space. This purple panel, however, creates a spooky scene while still allowing plenty of white space, and my nephew will love it!
The card has only two layers. The sponged panel is edged with a black Sharpie marker rather than matted on black card stock. It's cleaner that way. Without the edging, though, it looked rather blah.
Now, see? Halloween in August isn't so bad.
