New Release – Spooky goings on over at Polka Dot Orchard – Halloween Season

Hi friends, It’s Halloween and Fall New Release from Polka Dot Orchard and today I am showcasing 2 Halloween cards from 3 sets. These sets reminded me of Eerie Halloween movies so I wanted to eminate that on my cards.

For my first card I used the top two sets, I set up my scene on my photo editor and printed onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card and coloured in the scene with my Arteza Brush Markers. Next, I got out some tracing paper and traced along the scene then cut out. This is to create a mask so I can ink blend the night scene sky. I used my Stick It Repositionable Tape to adhere my mask down.

Next I got my Distress Inks and Blender Brushes out, I used Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers, Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed. I blended the inks until I was happy with my scene and let it dry.

Then I took a small amount (less than a pea size) of White Gouache and mixed with same small amount of water. I took my size 6 brush and created splatters as I wanted bright white to imitate stars.

I layered my card front onto orange and black card then adhered to my card base.

For my next card I used the set ‘scare in the air’. I used all the same distress inks except Chipped Sapphire.

I used Promarkers to colour my scene however for the bats and the dead tree I used watermark ink pen so I could emboss with Primary Ebony Black WOW embossing Powder, the crosses I used Primary Chartreuse Regular. To create my stars I used my white POSCA Pen as I didn’t have my skyline quite as dark for this card.

Layered my card front onto orange and black card then adhered to my card base.

I hope you like my eerie Halloween cards, remember to pop over to Polka Dot Orchard and grab some of the new sets while they are half price. That’s me for today, I have another Halloween card to make then onto Fall cards 🍁

Stay safe my friends

Kirsty 🌸
