Tim Holtz Halloween Inspiration Series...Happy Pumpkinheads...

Hi folks...Tim's Halloween Inspiration Series has come to an eerie end but you can check out all the inspiration from Week 3 over on Tim's Blog...
I've still got a few projects to share with you and today's it's the turn of a trio of Happy Pumpkinheads...
you can't help but feel happy when you look at these smiley pumpkin faces.
I started off by tearing a strip of masking paper and fixing it to the bottom of a piece of Distress Watercolor card. I then smooshed Twisted Citron and a little Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks on to my non-stick craft sheet and you all know the drill by now, drying, spritzing with water and picking up the left over ink droplets.
I stamped the three pumpkins on to the card with Black Archival and again on to a piece of Distress Watercolor card coloured with Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides, cut out and fixed over the stamped images. I used Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink and the Ranger Detailer Brush to create shadows around the bottom of the pumpkins. I removed the masking paper and stamped the sentiment from Stampers Anonymous Haunted House with Black Archival, added Halloween Remnant Rubs, shaded around the edges of the card with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool and added splatters of Spiced Marmalade to the sentiment section.
I fiinshed off by adding shadows to the wording with a Spiced Marmalade Distress Marker. I'll be back soon to share my last project, a very spooky Vignette Box, in the meantime, have fun whatever you are making.
Happy Crafting

Tim Holtz Halloween Inspiration Series...Scared Silly

Hi Folks...today I'm sharing the "Scared Silly" card I made for the Tim Holtz Halloween Inspiration Series...

I started off by colouring my card blank with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink using the direct to paper technique, cut Distress Watercolor card and paper from the Halloween Stash pad to be slightly smaller. I fixed the paper in place and used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stitched Rectangles Thinlits to die cut apertures in the Distress Watercolor card. I tapped Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks on to my non-stick craft mat, pulled the card through the ink, dried, spritzed with water and repeated to pick up the remaining droplets.  I then used a blending tool with Black Soot Diistress Oxide to darken up the edges and create shadows around the apertures. I used the Crossed Mini Layering Stencil with Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks to add interest to the background. I added the panel to the card popped up on 3D Foam Tape to create dimension.
I stamped the images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Scared Silly on to Distress Watercolor card with Black Archival, coloured with Distress Markers and the Detailer Brush, cut out and arranged in the apertures.
I stamped the sentiments on to card coloured with Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade using Black Soot Distress Oxide and on to black card using Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Clear and Super Fine White Embossing Powder. I finished off by adding Ranger Glossy Accents to the eyes on the skeleton and pumpkins, the band on the witches hat and the eye in the jar.
It's Friday and the weekend beckons, have a great one whatever you have planned and I'll see you all on Monday with my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge...in the meantime the cubbyhole is well and truly in Christmas mode...

Toodle-oo for now

Tim Holtz Halloween Inspiration Series - Something Wicked This Way Comes...

Hi folks...I'm sharing the how-to and links to the products I used to make my "Something Wicked This Way Comes" card for the Tim Holtz Halloween Inspiration Series using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Stamp Sets - Ravens/Skulls and Cobwebs and the sentiment from Monstrous...

I started off by colouring the card blank with Wilted Volet Distress Oxide ink using the diret to paper technique, cut a panel of Distress Watercolor card to be slightly smaller and dabbed Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and a little Black Soot Distress Oxides on to my non-stick craft mat, pulled the panel through the ink, dried and spritzed with water and then tapped the panel on to the craft mat to picked up the remaining droplets, dried and spritzed again until I was happy with the background. I inked up the Skulls background stamp with Black Soot Distress Oxide and stamped randomly on the background. I also stamped the Raven image on to the background and again on to Distress Watercolor card. I stamped the splatter image from Ravens with Versamark ink, heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail White Embossing powder and because I didn't use an anti-static powder tool, it stuck to some of the Skulls stamping but hey I don't mind, it makes it looks more grungy and less perfect...
I cut out the Raven leaving a white border around the edges, layered on top of the stamped image using 3D foam pads and added a spider from Idea-ology Halloween Remnant Rubs. I coloured an Idea-ology Cross Bones Adornment with Picket Fence Distress Paint and threaded on to black Eclectic Elements thread wound around the top of the panel and tied in a bow.
I stamped the sentiment from Monstrous on to a strip of Idea-ology Plain Tissue Wrap with Versamark ink, heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and also stamped a small portion of the skulls background with Black Archival. I tore the strip, fixed to the back of the panel and added some hand stitching with the Eclectic Elements thread.
I'll be sharing my "Hocus Pocus/Scared Silly" card tomorrow, the last of my projects for Week 3 of the Tim Holtz Halloween Inspiration Series and can't wait to see what Tim will be sharing in Week 4.
