Our Photo Inspiration Challenge will be open until this Sunday, September 19 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see YOUR project inspired by the photo!
To start I used blending brushes to lightly apply Cracked Pistachio, Salvaged Patina, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink randomly across a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock. Next, I placed the Bubbles Stencil over the panel and used a slightly heavier hand to blend the same colors over the stencil to create bubbles. I rotated and flipped the stencil around to get a variety in the direction and shape of the bubbles.
I splattered the panel with water and shimmer spray and then let it dry. Once it was dry, I die-cut it with the largest Stitched Rectangle die. Then I placed the stencil over the panel again and applied a layer of white glitter glitz gel and let the panel dry completely.
While the panel was drying, I stamped the sentiment from Purrfectly Wicked onto Black Licorice cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I also stamped a bunch of images from Purrfectly Wicked and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I used a cool and toner grey Copic markers to get the variation in shades between the cats, cauldron, and hat!
Once the panel was dry, I trimmed my sentiment down into two thin labels and adhered it with foam mounting tape. I also adhered the colored images to create my little Halloween scene. I love how the bubble stenciling makes it look like their cauldron brew is really getting out of control!
And that’s it! You one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see how the challenge photo inspires your creations! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend! -Jess
