52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

DesignTeam make for the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" #408 Halloween or Cats

There is a new challenge theme on the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog".  Challenge #408 has a theme of "Halloween or Cats".  If you have a minute to spare, please do pop over and take a look at the fab makes by my Design Team colleagues.

For my card, I used a selection of Distress Oxide Inks and Lavinia Stamps to create this image.

I started by masking off a circle and filling it with a blend of Antique Linen and Scattered Straw Distress Oxide inks.  I then covered the circle with a mask and used a mix of the following shades of Distress Oxide Inks to create the sky colours:  Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Worn Lipstick and Chipped Sapphire.

For the landscape I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss Distress Oxide Inks.

I used two shades of Versafine Clair ink throughout this card:  Nocturne (Black and Morning Mist a grey shade).

I multiple stamped the "Lavinia Stamps Tree Branch".  I then added one of the crows from the "Lavinia Stamps Crow Set", the "Lavinia Stamps Bats" and then the "Lavinia Stamps Seasonal Tree".

I then moved on to the lower section of the card by stamping "Lavinia Stamps Mooch The Cat", "Lavinia Stamps Meadow Mushroom", the "Mini Slender Mushroom" and "Lavinia Stamps Meadow Grass".

Finally, I added some tufts of grass using a black fine liner pen and also high-lighted areas using a white Signo Pen.
