World Card Making Day - Reverse Confetti Halloween

Happy World Card Making Day!   My blog feed is loaded today with all kinds of events and card markers from around the world sharing creations.   I am on a Halloween kick since Fall just started and the weather has cooled down significantly for me.   I ordered some Halloween sets from Reverse Confetti and used all the sets that I got to make the following Halloween cards.    I have several to share with you today.

First up.....

This layout may be familiar if you have viewed my blog recently.   I used a similar layout last week for a card.   I started by stenciling the water color paper with Hero Arts Orange Soda ink.   The watercolor paper has texture to it.   The panel is a full A2 size.    Next I stamped and colored my images from the Best Witches and Too Cute to Spook stamp sets with Copic markers and cut each out.    I stamped the sentiment  from Treat Yo' Self in Versafine Onyx Black ink with my MISTI to ensure that the sentiment was very dark and crisp.  

Stamp Set: Reverse Confetti Best Witches, Treat Yo' Self, Too Cute to Spook
Inks: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, HA Orange Soda, Versafine Black Onyx
Papers: Canson Watercolor paper, SU Basic Black, Copic Xpress it, MFT Whip Cream 
Tools: MFT Stitched Fishtail Frames, Wink of Stella Clear, Sakura White Gel Pen, MFT Stencil Jumbo Polka Dot Stencil

Second Up.....

This card almost ended up in the trash pile.   I stamped and masked the images from Best Witches and then watercolored them with Distress Inks.    I started to trash the panel but set aside and came back to it later and completed it.   I am a little OCD with coloring and need to get back into watercoloring so I can embrace the imperfections!  One thing that I did do when it was finished was to use some of my Prisma Colored Pencils to add shadows and deepen some of the coloring.
