Meet today's card using a stencil from A Colorful Life Designs called
A fun one for sure.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I placed a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station and placed stencil #1 (body) from the Layered Monsters and inked them up with some Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink.
  • After they were all inked, I removed that stencil and placed stencil #2 (face features) into position and inked those up with some Black Soot DOX ink.
  • Next, using the eraser on the end of my pencil, I stamped the little black circles into the white spaces between the little monsters to add more interest.
  • I splattered with my Black Posca pen over the whole panel.
  • Using my white Posca pen, I gave all the eyes a spot of white.
  • I die cut the 'BOO' letters from the stenciled panel and gave the edges some inking with more of the Black Soot to help them stand out a bit.
  • I cut the letters again with some white cardstock, stacked and glued them all together so they would pop on my card front.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of black, then purple cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • Finally, I positioned and glued the letters back into place on the front of the panel for an 'eclipse style' card.
