Hello friends and welcome to a new week. I can't believe how quickly the summer and in fact the whole year is going.
Today I made a card for the current sketch challenge at MFT Card Challenges.
For my card I combined the new Frightful Friends and Grave Situation stamp sets from MFT Stamps as well as the older Witch Way Is The Candy? set.
I used distress inks on smooth card stock to make the background and grass. I think it's hard to tell on the finished background but I actually started by covering the whole panel with Picked Raspberry distress ink and then went over that with Dusty Concord and Black Soot distress inks. Once I was happy with the colour I used the distress sprayer to spray it with water, left it for about 30 seconds and then blotted it with paper towel. I also cut a small panel of smooth card stock with the Grassy Fields dies, inked it up with Peeled Paint and a little bit of Black Soot distress inks and sprayed that with water as well.
I stamped the fence directly onto the background piece with Versafine - Onyx Black Ink. I actually looked up pictures of "The Bride of Frankstein" before I coloured her and decided to add some blood to her bandages. Her skin was just a little too boring so I added a slight tinge of green to make it stand out a bit more.
I really happy with how the finished card turned out, especially the background.
