Pumpkin Spooks Card by Kathi F. Rerek

  1. Cut a piece of 12x12 orange cardstock to 6x12, score, and fold in half to form a 6" square card.
  2. Cut a piece of Mixed Media paper to 6" x 8".
  3. Smoosh Distress Oxide inks onto a craft mat, spritz with water, and press a piece of mixed media cardstock into the puddles of lovely color. Heat set.Spritz with water, dab with a paper towel, and heat set.
  4. Repeat steps #2 and #3 until you're happy with the result.
  5. Heat set the mixed media cardstock until absolutely totally dry. Then heat a bit more just because. 
  6. Position the Pumpkin Spooks 6x6 stamp stamping side down onto the base of a stamping platform then lift.
  7. Use magnets to secure the inked cardstock in place on the base of the platform.
  8. Ink the stamp with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and stamp.
  9. Repeat step #8 until you are happy with the stamped image.
  10. Heat set. 
  11. Lightly spray the image panel with Starburst Spray and heat set.
  12. Trim to 5.75" square then use a scissor blade and/or distressing tool to rough up the edges. I like to use both.
  13. Use Distress ink to sponge the edges to add a bit of color to the frayed bits.
  14. Color the jack o'lanterns' stems, mouths, eyes, and hat with Distress markers.
  15. Adhere the image panel to the orange card.
  16. Re-ink the Pumpkin Spooks stamp with Memento ink, then stamp the image onto Mixed Media cardstock.
  17. Fussy-cut the skeleton and color with Copic markers. Edge lightly with the W1 marker.
  18. Adhere the fussy-cut colored skeleton over his counterpart on the card.
  19. Add the sentiment stickers to finish the piece.
