Lawn Fawn Trick or Treat

I love this time of year! The leaves are so pretty and I love the chill in the air.  There is nothing like sleeping under some nice heavy blankets with three or four cats snuggling up next to you! For this Sunday post on the Dies R Us inspiration Blog, I'm sharing another adorable Lawn Fawn Halloween card.  I hope you like it!


What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Labels, #660060
Red, Brown, Orange, Yellow, Green, Grey and Black Cardstock
Watercolor Paper
Hero Arts Intense Black Ink
Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen
Blender Pen
Various Gems
MISTI
Pop Dots

When I got the Lawn Fawn Costume Party set, I stamped a bunch of the adorable characters on watercolor paper and colored them in with my Inktense Pencils using a blender pen. I found that using the MISTI is the best way to stamp on watercolor paper since the texture of the paper can inhibit the ink from making a strong stamp.  Once I die cut them, I also decorated them with various gems, Wink of Stella pens, glossy accents, and other goodies.

While the gems and decorations were drying I started to make the actual card.  I started by making the backdrop in grey card, then cutting a tree out of brown card and attaching that over the grey tree.  The leaves on the tree were die cut
You can see the dimension of the mummy
and the dragon.
from various fall colors and attached to the tree (no matter how many photos I took of the card, nor how I enhanced it, the leaves never came out as brilliant as they are on the actual card.)  I attached the grey frame and the brown tree onto a piece of black card - I felt this would showcase the adorable little costumed kids the best.  Lastly,  I stamped the sentiment on white card and used the Labels die set to cut it out.  

Another Look
Assembling the components was easy - I placed the sentiment and the characters onto the card and attached them.  I pop dotted every other character; both the mummy and the dragon are pop dotted. I loved decorating the costumes after they were colored.  The witch has some clear Wink of Stella on her hat, as does the candy the mummy is holding.  There are green gems on the pumpkin stem, glossy accents on the pumpkin hat, and orange gems were used on the pumpkin's eyes (and the little teeth were colored white with a gel pen.)  Finally, the pink dragon was accented with some pink gems.
