Black and Orange at Divas

Hi there,

Spooky, cute, funny we want to see them all don’t wait too long to join in as our sponsor Craft Bag has a goodies waiting for you.
For more inspiration from my teammates visit our blog and get crafty!

My proposition for you this week is very simple and easy to recreate.

To make it you will need:

Base for your card (mine is 13.5×13.5cm);
Watercolour paper;
Watercolour paints: I used Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Sunset set;
Indian ink;
Stamp: October Afternoon “Leaves”;
Die: CottageCutz “Pumpkin Trio”, Die-namics Blueprints 14;

Here’s my ready card:



I had begun with cutting out “stitched” square of watercolour paper. On my crafting mat I mixed my shimmery watercolours and dipped my paper in a mix, used heat gun to dry the paper and repeated the same process few times. I splashed some Indian ink; let it dry and then stamped my leaves with archival black ink. I glued the watercolour paper to the base. I cut out the pumpkin twice, applied VersaMark ink on the edges and heat embossed with Frosted Crystal embossing distress powder. It gave my pumpkin a bit of texture and dewdrops like effect. I like very much the look of it. I stamped the “face” in the middle of one pumpkin ant cut it out. I assembled it with 3D foam for more texture and distressed pumpkin’s dewdrops with Ruby Treasure Gold for even more interesting look. I finished it off with some raffia and voila!

Hope you feel inspired. Happy crafting and see you soon. 🙂
