Eat, Drink, and Be Scary

 It's Tuesday, which means Kathi here to share a project with you! This week I've got a Halloween card for you with Katzelkraft's fabulous Owls Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set and their Funny Accessories Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set. I've also used the Skull Shadow Stencil by Visible Image

Here it is!

 I really hope this is a tiny bit scary, or if failing the "scary test" is spooky. 

I chose three of the six owls from the Owls Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set to use in this card. Those three and the Witch's Hat from the Funny Accessories Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set were stamped, fussy-cut, colored with Copic markers, and edged with a dark marker to get rid of those frightful white edges. The owls and the hat were set aside while I worked on the background. It was cool because it gave the owls time to socialize and try on the hat.

A piece of my favorite heavy weight mixed media paper was sprayed with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide ink to create a quick background. The Skull Shadow Stencil was placed onto the background, then Bundled Sage Distress Oxide ink was sprayed over it. The background was lightly misted with water, then heat set.

The stencil was cleaned and dried, then positioned atop the background paper in the same place. Bundled Sage Distress Ink was sponged around the skull to get rid of any stray lines from the stencil and to deepen the green background. 

Barn Door and Fossilized Amber Distress ink were sponged into the Skull Shadow Stencil's eye and nose sockets. Black Soot Distress ink was sponged around the edge of the skull and the skull's apertures to delineate them from the background.

The Skull Shadow Stencil was set aside. Black Soot Disress ink was sponged over a Branches stencil to add to the background. The background was trimmed to 5.75" square, heavily edged with Black Soot Distress ink, and adhered to a 6" square green card.

The background piece was trimmed and edged with Distress ink. Black die-cut branches were adhered to the background panel. The owls were adhered as shown. A sticker sentiment was added to complete the card.
