I am up on the Blank Page Muse blog today with this grungy Halloween card. 'Tis the season for witches, but let's not forget the Warlocks! This dapper Steampunk dude just screams Halloween to me.
On your craft mat smoosh on the purple shades of Distress ink and run your Distress Mixed Media Heavystock paper through so the entire surface is covered. Wipe your ink up( wipe ink up between each layer) Dry the base layer and smoosh more purple on the craft mat to get splats and dots. Dry this layer.
Smoosh greens on the craft mat and tap the paper into the ink. Don't rub or you'll get mud. Dry the greens.
Smoosh on Hickory Smoke Oxide ink and tap the paper into the ink. Let this layer air dry. It's important to let the Oxide air dry to get the oxide effect.
Stamp the Halloween Bingo Board on the background using Coffee archival ink. Edge the paper with black soot DIstress ink. Stitch all around the edge of the cardstock.
Using the Tattered Banner Die cut out the banner and stamp on the Oh, Son-of- a-Witch stampin Jet Black Archival Ink. You can alter your stamps by either not inking the word or snipping the saying apart. For this card the "oh" wasn't used. Stamp the saying onto the banner. Ink the banner using Black SOot and Pumice Stone Distress Ink Adhere the banner to the bottom of the background.
Stamp the Steampunk Gentleman on heavy watercolor cardstock. Color in the gentleman using a waterbrush and Distress Markers (Hickory Smoke, Dusty Concord, Mowed Lawn, Dried Marigold, Antique Linen, and Mustard Seed) Cut out the gentleman and then ink all the edges with black soot ink. Glue the Steampunk Gentleman to the background.
The rest of the card is just layered up with various cardstocks.
I hope you like my Steampunk warlock!
