Hello everyone, it's already October and we start a new challenge on the Country View Challenges blog. The theme is Harvest or Halloween. And as you can see, I chose Halloween because I made a card with The Count (Dracula) by Tim Holtz.
For the background I chose a Halloween background stamp from Tim Holtz, Webs&Damask. Here I used the Damask. I stamped the image on watercolour paper with embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Then I blended Mowed Lawn, and then Rustic Wilderness to the surface.
I cut off the excess, and inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink.
What I used:
Sizzix Thinlits die, The Count Colorize die (665557)
Sizzix Thinlits die, Fireside (664193)
Sizzix Thinlits die, Santa's Helper (664192)
Sizzix Thinlits die, Frightful Things (664209)
Stampers Anonymous, Webs&Damask (CMS276)
Stampers Anonymous, Noteworthy (CMS446)
Rangers Distress inks (Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, Black Soot)
Rangers Ditress Archival inks (Black Soot, Ground Espresso)
So if you have an autumnal or Halloween themed project, please don't hesitate to join our October challenge where a randomly selected winner can have a £20 voucher in the Country View Craft Shop.
