Spooky Double Z-Fold Halloween Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here sharing my Spooky Double Z-Fold Halloween Card for the Design Team of Paper Nest Dolls. I had so much fun colouring with my Copic Markers these cuties from the Spooky House Set (7 Stamps). This set comes with 7 stamps including 6 characters and a haunted house. I used the digital stamps, but this set also comes in rubber and can be found in the store here

Spooky Z-Fold Halloween Card

I had a ton of fun creating this spooky double z-fold card for our trick-or-treaters who are out roaming around! Do they dare go to the eerily spooky house on the hill??? The pirate and the ghost are headed that way!

To create my spooky night sky, I used a technique called the Copic Galaxy Background. For the galaxy stars, I used my Tim Holtz Distress Splatter Brush. I also used a White Gelly Roll Pen and the Colorless Blender, to make my some of my stars appear brighter/closer.

Next I used Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink Pads with a Round Blending Tool to create my glowing moon on a stitched circle die. I used the Splatter Brush again to splatter water onto the moon to give a bit of texture once it was dry.

I love the Spooky House that comes with this set! I had fun colouring it, especially those glowing windows and doorway! In addition to colouring them, I use a paint brush and painted a thin layer of Apple Sour Nuvo Glow Drops. I wanted the details of the broken panes of glass and the spider to still be seen, but when you turn out the lights, the windows and door glow spookily.
