Halloween with the InKing Royalty


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop!  We are excited to share some super-fun creations with you today!  This month’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on the spookiest time of year – Halloween.  What fun!  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Fall is such a fun time of year.  I just love all the pumpkins, leaves changing color, best of all football season.  Halloween is just one of the fun holidays that just brings out the joy in decorating.  Everthing from hanging gost in a tree to hainging spiderwebs in the hall way are compleatly acipatable.  Black candile stick are just simply a must. Anyway, it is just a great holiday.  Childeren dress up an trick or treat… I wanted to create a card that brought out the spooky feel of Halloween.  That being said.  I had not really pruchased my stamps for Halloween yet.  I know right????  So, thinking about what stamps I had…I combined two sets to create a fun sean.  I debated on adding a sentament but in the end.  I decided that it was best without…

When I first saw the Anniual catalog I was imadately in love with the Glamper Greetings stamp set.  Who does not love a great camper????

I just used the bats and the little pumpkin for this set.  I can’t wate to play with the set more and create all sorts of different camper outings… I combined the basts and the pumpkin with trees form the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  This set is only avaibale for a limited time.  And it is just full of amazing trees.

There are so many posibilites with this set!  And the greetings are Amazing!!!!

 Here are a few detils:

  • To create the night sky I created a mask for my large Harvist Moon. (let’s all sing Harvist Moon)  and then used my Clarity stincle brushes and inks to create the background.  I first laid down some Smoky Slate ink fallowed by Dapper Denim.  Then I went back and forth between the to colors untill I liked the background.  I added a little Early Espresso to to bottom for the night time ground.  After removing the mask, I laid down the negative mask to show only the moon.  Then with the brushed add some Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango.
  • The second step was to add some White Gouache to the card to create clouds.
  • Finally, I stamped the trees and the bats with Basic Black Ink and the Pumpkin in Tangerine Tango
  • The card is layered on basic black and the Warmth & Cheer Designer series paper stack

  2. Jennifer, I had not even noticed the bats and birds in the camper set… thanks for sharing your awesome card!!!

  3. This makes me want to use my Clarity brushes more. What a great card you have created, Jennifer. It has such an eerie, desolate feel. Thanks!

  4. See this is why I love “scene” cards SO MUCH! Some of the things I love: the clouds (note to self, buy gouche, I was wondering what made them stand out.) the trees, the blend between the sky and ground, the DSP (we both used it)! You always inspire me, TFS!

  5. This is such a lovely card. Soft yet spooky. šŸ™‚ My favorite thing is the little jack-o-lantern sitting under the tree!

  6. OMG, Jessica. I love the spooky background you created. It’s a work of art.
