Hello! I’m back today with another Halloween card this time using some loose watercoloring! You can watch the video below or at my YouTube channel!
First I stamped the Spider Web cling stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. Then I taped it to a hardboard and watercolored it with distress inks in dusty concord, black soot, and seedless preserves! I applied one layer of color and then dried it with a heat gun. Then I went back in and added the same inks at a higher concentration for more intense colors. I let that dry and then flicked the panel with white acrylic paint. Later I added metallic silver and iridescent spray and then another layer of white acrylic paint. While the paint was drying I worked on the sentiment of my card.
I die-cut the Wiggly Spiders and a circle from black cardstock several times. The circle is a little larger than the size of the largest spider’s body. Next I stamped the sentiment from HandLettered Halloween onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with silver sparkle embossing powder before die-cutting it with the coordinating dies. Once the spiderweb panel was dry I die-cut it with two circles slightly smaller than the size of the largest spider’s body. This is the opening for my spinning element.
I added a foam glue dot to the back of my largest spiders and pressed it to the front of the spider web panel so that the glue dot stuck out through the back of the die-cut circle. Then I removed the adhesive backing from the glue dot and adhered the larger circle to it. This allowed my spider to wiggle slightly and spin around. After my two spiders were attached I added a layer of foam mounting tape to the back of the spider web panel and adhered it to a black card base. I added the sentiment and the rest of the spiders with ATG and liquid adhesive and finally I added googly eyes to my spiders to make them a little less scary and a little more silly!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
