I usually don’t make too many Halloween cards, but I had this cute tiny stamp set that couldn’t resist not using it:)) For this card I also wanted to try masking with masking fluid as I only used this media once in the past.
Initially I had all the stamped little ghosts covered with the masking fluid and wanted to try some Distress Ink blending on my background. But while I was trying to blend, I noticed that I was picking up the masking fluid. So I just applied a bit of color here and there and then used a brush and water to blend and color my background. I have to say that I was really impressed with this masking fluid, it covered my images so well and resisted all that water that I added. The spots where I got color onto my masked images were because I used a brush that was too big for covering the tiny ghosts. I did fix that with some white paint and my white gel pen.
Once everything was dry, I used a die set from Simon Says Stamp and cut the houses from black cardstock. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment and mounted my piece with foam onto my card. As I wanted a bit of shimmer I used a shimmer spray that I have since like forever and I looove how it all sparkles and shine 😀
I made a quick video to show you the process and you can watch it down below, or HERE on my Youtube channel.
