The October release is now live!

Halloween fun - Layering and masking

by Tina Wilstrup
The October release is now available in the Etsy shop – YAY!

Hello everyone, it’s Tina here with a couple os cards to inspire you.

This release has cute and spooky halloween stamps, as well as gorgeous flowers, and today I’m sharing with you how cute these stamps are when you layer them.
The cards are created in much the same way. For this first one I layered the Spider web 1 from Spider web bundle over the Halloween pumkins. It was a little tricky seeing all the details of the pumpkins through the intricate spider web, I’ll be honest. But it was totally worth it.
Copics used:
YR09, YR68, YR04, YR21
G99, G24, G40
When printing the panels I made sure to print on regular printer paper as well. I fuzzy cut the rows of pumpkins out of the printer paper, added Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to the back and let it dry (any glue that dries tacky will work).
Once the glue was dry I layed it over my colored panel and ink blended using Altenew inks from Cherry blossom and Shades of purple. I really like the look of the pumpkins peeking out from behind the spider web.
So as I said I used the same technique for the second card where I layered the Halloween cat 1 stamp over the Spider web 2, again from Spider web bundle.
This has much simpler coloring but gives more room for that cute spider to show her web. Don’t you think?
Copics used:
C9, C7, C5 + C3, C1
YG17, YG06, YG03, YG01

V17, V15, V12

This time I fuzzy cut the cat, added the liquid glue and let dry. I only used the purple inks for this card, creating ombré shades but centering it at the centre of the spider web, as opposed to the centre of the card panel.
I gold heat embossed the sentiment – how cute is that sentiment?
For a finishing touch I added a tiny bit of shimmer and glossy accents to the spider and cat eyes.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and don’t forget to check out the full release on Etsy, as well as the release Instagram hop where you can win a $10 gift certificate to the Etsy shop.

Until next time, be safe.
