Global Stamping Friends October Blog Hop Halloween & Autumn Colors

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop as we showcase Halloween and Autumn colors. October is such a wonderful month with the leaves changing to beautiful colors and everyone is getting ready to celebrate Halloween. Our wonderful Design Team Members will be sharing their ideas and projects to help inspire you to get into the spirit of the season. 
Now that the weather is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter, I have noticed now beautiful the night sky is at the moment. There is something about the colors as twilight fades in Autumn that inspired me to create this fun Halloween card design using the Best Witches stamp set and the Aspen Trees Dies. I just love the dark silhouette of the trees for the background behind the cute little witch and her cauldron and the glow of the sky behind her. I love exploring different color combinations and for this card I had fun combining purples and blues with a touch of warmth with a splash of orange and yellow.

I had so much fun playing with colors to create this Halloween card. For the blended background layer, I used Blending Brushes to add layers of Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather and Orchid Oasis Classic ink, starting from the bottom and working towards the top. I also added some Orchid Oasis in around the sides to create the glow in the center. For the silver fog in the background, I attached several pieces of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon over the blended background layer and attached the ends on the back of the cardstock. I just love this silvery sparkle that it adds to this card design. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Silver embossing powder onto the scalloped oval die cut from Starry Sky cardstock. I added the Basic Black die cut layer over the top of the background layering using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, making sure to line up both layers. For the witch image, I stamped the image onto Basic White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with Stampin' Blends Markers and then fussy cut the image with Paper Snips. To complete the card design, I attached the witch image to the bottom of the card front and added Silver Foil stars that I punched out using the Witch Builder Punch. For a slight touch of sparkle, I also added Clear Wink of Stella to the yellow buckle on the band of the witch's hat and to the flames and bubbles around the cauldron.
