Hello scrappers! Apparently fall is upon us, so I figured I might as well embrace it and make a Halloween card. I started by printing a digital image from Tiddly Inks and colored it with my Copics. I actually printed and colored 4 so I was able to knock out several cards in a pretty short period of time. Coloring the image is the most time consuming part, especially since I'm still a beginner in the Copic world.
After I finished coloring I cute each image out using a Spellbinders die. I used a larger size die to cut some coordinating pattern paper to layer my image on.
In this picture you can see the spider webs I cut with my Cricut. The little pieces are pretty delicate so I'd recommend using your spatula when removing the image from your mat.
Next I inked up a large rubber stamp to create a background for my card. I find it easier to place my paper on top of the stamp as opposed to placing the stamp on the paper. I've found that I get a more even impression.
And here's what it looks like after stamping.
I couldn't get a good picture of it, but I did distress the edges of the black piece of cardstock. I adhered two spider webs to the corners of my first layer.
I trimmed a piece of vellum to fit just inside of the black layer. I didn't want to cover the distressed edges. I placed my adhesive just in the area behind my image so it wouldn't be visible. Vellum can be a little tricky to attach and I haven't found an adhesive that doesn't show through, so some creativity is required.
