Colette has opted for a classic Halloween palette: purple, orange, green and black. Though we love the pop of bright blue too! Use your trusty alcohol markers to colour in the motifs, adding lines in a darker shade to imitate fur on the monster. Alternatively, print directly onto coloured card. These digi stamps are in a PNG format, making that possible – print the monster onto lime card, then colour in his eyes and teeth with a white gel pen.
Mask, blend, spritz
To make the uppermost card, Colette has used the masking technique – yep, it’s possible with digi stamps too! Simply print the house silhouette onto white, then die cut a circle from scrap card and use it to mask off the motif. Apply and blend Wilted Violet, Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks. Lightly spritz with water, allowing for some larger droplets. Once dry, remove the masks and colour in the windows.
Spots and stripes
Using background patterns such as polka dots and stripes is a surefire way to add whimsy and a friendly touch to your Halloween cards. Only if you want to of course; you may prefer to go full-on supernatural! Other ways Colette has added humour is with googly eyes and Halloween stickers from her own stash. Don’t have googly eyes? Use mini black pearls like on our pumpkin selfie card.
