Hey Everyone! It is that time of year again…that’s right the best crafting time of the year, Halloween! Today I launch my Halloween 2020 crafting collection, sharing different projects that I made simply because I love Halloween!
Today, I launch my creepy season with a two for one project. I pulled out my Distress Oxide Reinkers and was able to get two separate prints from it.
I started the project by dropping three shades of green (Lucky Clover, Pine Needles, and Twisted Citron) plus black (Black Soot) Distress Oxide Reinker onto my glass table. I sprayed the ink with too much water, and then pressed both a piece of watercolor paper (first), then card stock into the week ink.
The watercolor paper was really saturated with ink, while the cardstock simply mopped up what was left. Regardless, I really like the background look on each of the papers.
I stamped similar scenes onto each of the backgrounds using a retired Newton Nooks stamp set (I still love to use my retired sets just so you know). The ink was so saturated on the watercolor paper even my waterproof ink had a hard time showing up. You can see how muddled it looks despite having stamped the scene twice.
Using two different retired Elizabeth Craft Designs die sets, I die cut out the scenes, focusing on keeping the best parts of the background.
The watercolor paper got mounted onto a card frame with a subtle spider printed paper background. Then to help the stamped images show up better, I added glossy accents. I love how in the tree, the colors of the Distress Oxide Reinker pulled through even the black ink. Using a black pen, I traced the sentiment to help it show up more.
The inked cardstock got mounted onto an A2 card framed loaded with a subtle orange spider print printed paper. I added a simple sentiment to the card from the Newton’s Nook stamp set.
Thanks for popping in today. Let me know in the comments below which of the two for one cards is your favorite, and make sure you say tuned for all the Halloween Fun to come! Until then, Happy Crafting.
