13 Days of Halloween, Day 7

Welcome to day 7 of 13 Days of Halloween. Today we are making a watercolor card. It’s spooky and cool, all at the same time!

First start with Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock cut to 11” x 4 1/4”, scored at 5 1/2”. Fold along the score line. Fill your Aqua painter with water. We will use it with ink to watercolor. Start with the Marina Mist Classic Stamp Pad. Squeeze the stamp so when you open it, there is ink in the top. This is the ink you will use to watercolor from the stamp pads. Using the ink with your Aqua Painter, paint the base blue as pictured below.

Next, paint your sky with Fresh Fig Classic Stamp Pad. Go back and paint an area again with more Fresh Fig, leaving a circular space free for the setting sun you are going to paint, see photo below for reference.

Using the Crushed Curry Classic Stamp Pad, paint your sun. Using a small amount of Pumpkin Pie Classic Stamp Pad, paint just a small amount around the outside to give it depth. 

You will now Stamp the gravestones from the Graveyard Gate Stamp Set using Smoky Slate Classic Stamp Pad. Using your Aqua Painter, run it along the bottom of the gravestones  dragging the gray ink out on each side.

Using some more Smoky Slate Classic Stamp Pad Ink, darken the gray area. Then clean the ink off your Aqua Painter and run it along the gravestones, blending out the lines as pictured below.

Stamp bats from the Graveyard Gate Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Stamp Pad Ink in the sky.

To finish off the card stamp the saying “Have a haunted Halloween” in the upper left hand corner in Tuxedo Black Memento Stamp Pad. Last, cut out a gate using the Detailed Gate Thinket Die with Basic Black Card stock. Adhere the gate to your card front using Liquid Multipurpose Adhesive. Voila! It’s done!
