For my first designer project for inloveartshop.com, I really wanted to see if I could alter the Halloween Cats on the Fence Stamp to create a cat-filled Halloween celebration card.
I essentially inked the stamp selectively — just around the cats, and wiping away over-inked areas like the moon and fence post tops with my DIY stamp shammy. Then I would reposition my card front around on my MISTI stamp tool and stamp the cats again. Leaving enough space to also heat emboss the sentiment, “Happy Halloween” from the Halloween Word Stamp Set, I was able to get most of 7 cats on this card!
Then I used the following Halloween/fall Copic colors to fully color up this card front:
Background: W04, V06 and V09
Cats: W3, W5, W7 with R21 ears and Y19 eyes and R29 tongue
Lastly, I used VersaMark Ink to stamp out the sentiment and Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder and Ranger Super Fine Black Embossing Powder to heat emboss the sentiment. The platinum base with the black overlay matched the warm grey of the cats perfectly and added a hint of shine and dimension to pull the card perfectly together.
