"So Wickedly Cute"
card by Val
LeighSBDesigner Val's 31 Days of Halloween inspiration for Day 14 is a wickedly adorable card featuring Digi Stamps from my new Once Upon a Nightmare Collection!
Val used my new Sleeping Batleigh Bats and Senti set and the Fern Frame from the Fern Frame and Saying set to make her wickedly adorable card.
Val printed out the Fern Frame and used it in the landscape format to give her Sleeping Batleighs a place to roost. She then created the Sleeping Batleighs scene and added the "So Wickedly Cute" senti included in the Sleeping Batleigh Bats and Senti set, printed out and did lots of fussy cutting of the frame and bats to inlay the digi stamp prints together and have the bats overlapping the fern frame where they hang.
Val used Spectrum Noir Tri-blends markers to colour the images and a white gel pen to add some details. She then used Dusty Concornd, Broken china and Black Soot Distress Oxides to colour her scene background and the card mat layer and applied Tim's Distress Clear Rock Candy Glitter to the senti and the fern frame with a Quickie Glue Pen. Val used Hobby Craft Brights cardstock to make her card.
Shop the Once Upon a Nightmare digi stamps used today and more in the Halloween Sale on now through Oct 31st!
