Halloween Magnetism

Halloween Magnetism.

I have had a very good day. Hence, two posts!

This card was a lot of fun to make. It does require a few layers but I like the effect of the thin green and black borders. I designed it for my grandson – Count Dracula is a magnet.

Stamps Used: Stampendous Marble Texture Cube;Graveyard (unmounted – unknown);Peddlar’s Pack – Count Dracula

White card blank with fold on the left size to make landscape orientation. Adhere black paper panel to cover the card front, then add a layer of green, and layer of black as shown. Focal point: stamp feature image on white card stock (graveyard). Cut a piece of vellum the same size as this panel and stamp with texture stamp using Black Memories Ink pad, heat set. Tint on the underside with green Marvy stamp pad; heat set. Tear out a window from the vellum and use the green stamp pad to accent the torn edges of the window and heat set. Add some green to front of vellum for more intensity -- yes, heat set! Place the vellum on top of the image panel, punch a hole in each corner and assemble with mini brads. Adhere to card.

Count Dracula is stamped with Memories Black stamp pad and colored with watercolors and fine brush. Put purple card stock behind the cutout and laminate. Cut out again leaving a margin of purple. Adhere to magnet material and cut out again. Leave Count Dracula free by slipping him between the vellum and the card stock image so that he can be removed and used as a magnet.
