Rubbernecker Stamps - Eek!

Welcome back!  Today I've got another fun Halloween card for you using some great dies from Rubbernecker Stamps!  I've fallen in love with these monsters!  

  • I started by cutting the Monsters die sets from multiple colors of cardstock like I did last time with the owls and then put a bunch of them together (I've got extras for later!)

  • Next, I cut the largest Slimline Rectangle from white cardstock.
  • I had previously cut some of the Slimline Clouds to use like a stencil or mask and pulled those out to blend some ink around them to create my background in green, blue and purple.
  • Then I splattered on some of the same inks with a waterbrush over the top of the clouds.
  • And finally for the cloudy background, I sprayed on some water and dabbed it off... I love the softer look it gives!

  • Next I started building my scene and cut them competely from black paper.  I used the Slimline Grass dies, Spooky Tree, Haunted House and others so they would just appear as shadows for a kind of silhouette background.

  • After the background was completed, I started adding my monsters with some popup tape in different widths.

  • I made one of the little monsters a pumpkin candy bucket by trimming one of the pumpkin die cuts and used a vine for the handle.
  • I die cut a couple sets of the alphabet die cuts in black glitter.  I will save the letters I didn't use for another project!  But I needed two E's so I cut two sets.
  • I popped up the letters for Eek onto the card as well as a couple bats and the added the owl in the tree!

Don't these little guys look like they are having a good time?!  And somehow I don't think they'll be scared to stop at this spooky house... 

And that's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come again for some more inspiration!
