I thought I would use a soft palette of teal, purple and lime green to make this Halloween card. It is a little non-traditional, but I think it works! The images were coloured using a mix of copic and spectrum noir alcohol markers. I die cut a thought bubble and then stamped and masked the candy to make it look like they were piled on top of each other. I coloured the kitty and fussy cut the image leaving a small white border. Then, I popped the images up on foam adhesive and adhered them onto black glitter cardstock that was cut using a wonky stitched rectangle die by My Favorite Things.
For the background, I used Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron. I was aiming for a soft blend of all three colours that matched the coloured images. The final step was to stamp the sentiment. I cut the sentiment stamp so that I could stamp it out on one line without having to do any masking. Using versafine black onyx ink, I stamped the sentiment three times for a nice crisp black image.
