Magic Mushrooms!

Helloo my friends! On this cold, wet and dark evening, allow me to share this warm card I made for my friend's birthday. I didn't stamp the greeting in front because she likes to frame her cards. And for a fun twist, I stamped a flying bat instead a bird. A little nod to Halloween! :)

I've used several stamps by Chocolate Baroque, TH Distress Inks and Graph'It markers. Here's how I created the card-front:

1. Punch a little circle to make a mask for the moon / sun. Blend the following TH Distress Ink for the sky: Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey and Mustard Seed.  For the ground, blend these inks: Forest Moss, Crushed Olive, Bundled Sage and Old Paper. Peel off the mask.

2. Stamp the mushrooms from Chocolate Baroque's new Autumn Edges A5 sheet onto bleed-free card and colour with alcohol markers. I used Graph'It markers: Powder, Silk, Princess Rose, Azalea, Fuchsia, Cranberry, Cherry, Burgundy, Pink Grey 3,  4, Warm Grey 0, 2, 4, Neutral Grey 0, 1, 2, Olive, Military, Anise. Fussy cut

3. Stamp the grassy image from Chocolate Baroque's Wild Meadow A4 sheet with Versafine Black Onyx on the prepared background. Stamp the bat from Witching Time A5 sheet with Versafine Black Onyx on the moon / sun.

4. Adhere the fussy cut row of mushrooms on the card.

5. Matt on red cardstock and adhere to card base. As easy as that!

Let's take a closer look at the image:

And on the inside I stamped a sentiment from Chocolate Baroque's Birthday Words
A5 sheet:

These are the Chocolate Baroque stamps I used:
