Welcome back my crafty friends, I have a spooktacular card to share with you. I'm still recovering from surgery on my arm, but was still able to complete this card, though at a snail's pace! I made it for Witt & Sass Stamp Company featuring the stamp set Ghost in a Jar. This is such a fun stamp set, used alone or with other
W & S products, such as in my card here, I also used:
-the Background Builders Wave Stencil on the water AND in the sky!
-I also used the Background Builders Sand and White Caps in the foreground sand area.
-Additionally, I used the new Sassy Pack Boo-licious (the sequins and cool sequin bats).
I used A LOT of other products as well on my card. I'd have to say this is somewhat mixed media, as I used Distress Ink, Distress Oxide Ink, Dye and Hybrid inks, Copic Markers, acrylic paints, and colored pencils on this baby!
Here's the colors of the products I used from above: (the Distress Inks/Oxides I strictly used on the background areas around the jar)
Distress Ink- Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs
Distress Oxide Ink- Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, and Faded Jeans
Dye Inks- Memento Tuxedo Black and London Fog (the jar and it's elements were stamped in London Fog)
Hybrid Inks: MFTs Brick Red and Steele Blue (used on the label)
Acrylic Paint- DecoArt Matte Metallics in Pewter and DecoArt Media Fluid in Carbon Black (used on the label and metal ring at the top of the bottle) and Acryla Gouache in Primary White (for the highlights on the bottle)
Colored Pencils- Faber-Castell Polychromos in Burnt Ochre, Raw Umber, Walnut Brown, Warm Grey II, Warm Grey V, Dark Indigo, Black and White
Copic Markers- E21, E23, E25, E51, E53, YR000, YR20, BV000, BV01, BV04, B000, B00, B02, C1, C3,C5,C7 and BG90
Clear Wink of Stella
Paper Elements- American Crafts Spooky Boo! paper pad, EK success Sticko Halloween stickers and other miscellaneous papers from my stash.
Dies and Punches- Top Note Die (?), Large Cross-Stitched Rectangle by Lawn Fawn, and Fiskars Postage Stamp Edge Punch.
I truly had fun making this card and challenging myself to color the glass jar as realistically as I could. Also mixing it up with a variety of coloring products was a great change of pace. I hope you give it a try. Coloring glass can be one of the most difficult things to color, but fun too once you begin to master it. If you are still reading down here (congratulations!), shoot me a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
