Cute Hoppy Halloween Card

Hello! It's another Monday and I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was pretty uneventful, but that's okay. We ran errands and did a few things around the house and that was it.

For this Cute Hoppy Halloween Card I decided to get a little inky with the background. Using mixed media paper and distress inks in: Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Abandoned Coral, Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves. Once the ink colors were blended I used a distress sprayer with water to lift some color, blotting with a paper towel. Then I used the heat gun to speed the drying process. The images are from Newton's Nook Hoppy Halloween stamp set, which I absolutely LOVE. Copic markers were used to color the images and then coordinating dies were used. The patterned paper is from the Boos & Brews paper pad by Doodlebug Designs, Inc. To accent the focal area a piece of green patterned paper was die cut with a retired edgelit die by Stampin' Up!. Then I decided to add two black bats using the Newton's Boo-tiful Night die set by Newton's Nook. Everything was adhered to a piece of Grape Delight cardstock by Bazzill and then adhered to the white card base. That's it! So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
