Hello friends! If you're here for the Sunny Studio Birthday Blog Hop, make sure you check out my post where you can leave a comment for your chance to win a great prize from Sunny Studio. Today, I'm sharing a fun Halloween card I created using heat embossing and watercoloring.
I love all things Halloween, so of course, I immediately fell in love with the new Sunny Studio Halloween Cuties stamp. I had so much fun creating with the stamps and dies that I ended up with quite a few Halloween cards. Since I made a few, I thought I'd share another one with you today. For this card, I stamped the adorable costumed raccoon randomly onto a piece of watercolor paper with Versmark Embossing Ink. I then sprinkled it with Ranger Super Fine Black Embossing Powder and heat set it with a heat gun. I did the same thing with the star and candy corn stamps. (When embossing, don't forget to rub down the paper with an Embossing Magic Powder Bag to keep the embossing powder from sticking where you don't want it to stick.)
Next, came the fun part...the coloring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brushes! I picked some Halloween colors and went to town, giving the little raccoon witch a purple dress and hat!
For the sentiment, I stamped Happy Halloween onto a piece of white paper with the Versamark Ink and embossed it with the same black embossing powder. I then cut it into a fishtail banner shape and layered it onto orange and black cardstock. I also stamped an extra star and die cut it to add as a little embellishment to the center of the black twine bow.
Yes, all the stamping, embossing and coloring might be time consuming, but the enjoyment I get from spending the time crafting and creating is so worth it!
Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out all the details for the Sunny Studio Birthday Blog Hop!
