Happy Halloween – Graveyard Scene
Happy Tuesday everyone!! Hopefully you enjoyed Autumn Blessings Inspiration Week!! So many amazing projects and so much inspiration!!
There were some fantastic ideas using the Haunted House Add-On Honey Cuts. Although those dies are meant to work with the House Builder Honey Cuts, I wanted to show you that they could be used on their own to create a graveyard scene!!
I began by die-cutting all of my elements from Bristol paper using the Haunted House Add-On, Grass Border and the moon from Partly Cloudy. I used Distress Oxide Inks to add color to all of the die-cuts and splattered some diluted gouache on the tombstones for a concrete look. I blended Distress Oxides onto another Bristol panel, splattered with water, Perfect Pearls and diluted gouache.
Once dry, I die-cut the panel using the largest of the Deckle Edge A2 Honey Cuts. I also cut the edges of the grass die-cuts with the same die. The greeting, from Faboolous Sentiments, was white heat embossed onto black cardstock and cut into a strip with the Cut-Align tool. Now the fun part!! I layered and adhered everything together as shown, popping up the ghosts with foam tape.
This scene was so much fun to put together!! You could also die-cut all of the elements from colored cardstock, but I enjoyed getting inky!!
Thanks for spending a bit of your day with me!! Have a great week and I’ll see you next Tuesday!!
