The Raven

Hi everyone! This is my second post of the day. If you're looking for my Newton's Nook Designs post, please click HERE.



This week, the Glitz Digital Team is sharing projects with inks, pains, and mists. I'm up on the Glitz blog today with a project using the new Raven collection:




Okay, first of all, can I say how much I love this collection? I'm a big fan of Halloween papers, and this collection is probably my favorite. Ever. The papers are Halloween-ish, but they could be used for any season (like the papers I used here).

I started with the raven image from the Element Pack 1 and sprayed a digital mist behind him. Then, I used a digital brush from the same Elements and stamped it twice to off-set the sentiment. Once I was done printing the image, I splattered some Mister Hueys over the image. Here's a close-up:



For the Raven papers, I splattered some mist on the stripe, but I thought the triangle paper could use something extra...

I've never lit paper on fire (for a card), but I decided to try it. I used photo paper, which seemed to slow the burn time, and it gave the edges just the right distressing. Strangely, my husband didn't even question why I was standing over the sink lighting the paper with a lighter. ha ha

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend!

  8. This is so cool! What a great image and papers too. I really don't make Halloween cards but I so enjoy seeing them. The burnt edges are awesome but I think I'm gonna talk myself out of trying it because I'm envisioning it not turning out quite as well for me as it did for you. :) LOL

  11. You can do anything Jocelyn! LOVE this fabulous card, especially the bird. And another doh moment for me, why didn't I ever think of burning the paper edges... we used to do it for school projects but that was so long ago, maybe that's why I forgot.
