I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We were super busy with family fun all weekend and we had a blast but it did wear me out a bit lol!
Today Kimberly and I are back with another Card Harmony post.
Here is a link to my blog post that tells a little bit about what Card Harmony is all about.
We basically take turns purchasing stamps each month and then we both make a card using the same stamp set to see how alike or different our cards turn out. We add a little twist each month though to make it a little more challenging.
It was my month to choose the stamp set and since it is October, I chose the absolutely adorable set from Lawn Fawn titled, Spooktacular. I had my daughter pick the added challenge for us and she picked a hard one! She told us that we had to make a Halloween card with no black!! WHAT??? The only black that we were allowed to use was the Copic friendly ink necessary if we planned on coloring our images. We could use shades of gray as long as we didn't go too dark. I can't speak for Kimberly but I sure did struggle with this! haha! Anywho, here is the card that I was able to create:
I started with a purple card base and added a light gray layer. I then added a fun glittery orange piece of cardstock from DCWV and wrapped a bit of bright green ribbon around it before I adhered it on top of the gray layer. I cut out a piece of watercolor cardstock using the Stitched Journaling Card from Lawn Fawn. I then got out some distress inks and blended some colors together to make my grass and sky. Once I had that done, I flicked a bit of water on top to get some fun little blotches. I love that look! I colored my images from the Spooktacular set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I used a fence border die from Darice, attached that to my watercolor panel and then started arranging my images to create a little scene. I heat embossed my sentiment with some white embossing powder. I finished off my card with a few star shaped confetti pieces, glossy accents and some faux white stitching.
