Sneak Peek - Look Whoooo's Watching

Today I'm sharing a sneak peek at a new line of Halloween stamps that are coming out! This sentiment is from Look Whoooo's Watching.

For the background, I wanted a spatter, artsy look - I used Spectrum Noir Ink Refills on top of  Shimmering Cardstock white pearl. I first made sure all the ink out of the True Black dropper and then and then squeezed it on the flat cardstock. It blows out a little color with air. 

Next, I added some some drops with OR2.

The main image stamped onto  Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock  and colored with Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils. I colored the darkest orange at the top of each letter in a row, then went back with the middle color and then the lightest at the bottom, softly blending each color with the one before. I used 021, 022, 026.

I used Die'sire Decorative Dies - Nouveau Stamping Frame to cut around the sentiment. Before removing it from the die, I dabbed in a little Distress Ink Pad spiced marmalade and Radiant Neon ink pads electric orange with a Sponge Dauber.

I cut the background down to an A2 size and sponged around the border with the neon orange.

I also sponged around the sentiment. I used a pointy cotton swap to get in the tight curves and also added some swirls with the neon ink. 

I layered over Shimmering Cardstock black.  I cut to allow for a nice wide border so you could see all the lovely shimmer.

There will be four fabulous, fun sets!
