Treats Along the Trail

I know we all love an after the holiday sale.  The stamps I used in today's featured card are ones that I picked up after Halloween last year from Stamping Bella's website.  There are four stamps, as you can see at the bottom of this posting.  I decided to make one card; which ended up being very large! But really cute...

 To make this card, I used Neenah 110# cardstock that measured 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". I started at the top and stamped the Haunted House, then worked down placing each stamp as close as I could without touching.  Each character is colored with Copic markers, also noted below.  

After I had completed coloring the Little Bits images, I sketched the road to connect the images along a pathway to the haunted house.  When the grassy area was completed, then I used a stencil and distressed oxides to make the clouds and the masked moon.  

The final element was adding the die cut trees ~ black silhouette trees.  Spooky and perfect for the haunted house card. 

I used a full 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of cardstock folded for the card base.  I trimmed about 1/2" off the completed image and added a deep purple matting.  Lastly I secured the matting and colored image to the card base to complete the card.
