Measurements: Designer paper – 2 ¾” x 4”, Spider/Cat panel - 1 ¾” x 3 7/8” Witch/Haunted House – 1 ½” x 3” borders are ¼” larger both ways.
My cat is done with the out of box technique so it’s stamped right onto the panel and the bottom portion is cut out.
This panel also has the finger walking technique done on it – ink up the image as its wood side down on your work surface, place the cardstock on the image and do the yellow pages walking so it doesn’t cover the entire panel. I also touch the panel to the image in other directions without re inking just because…no other good reason comes to mind other than I like the look!
The Witch panel is stamped with the images then I masked off the house and moon. (I punched a ½” circle to mask the moon and the house is just cut so the windows are covered because it doesn’t matter is the ink touches the house. Oh and don’t forget a piece for the light shining out of the door.) Sponged on the color, green for ground area and navy for the sky and also went over the green area with navy to darken it. After removing the moon mask because it’s a little bigger than the image I used the blender pen to fill the white circle area around the image then did a little navy sponging over it for a more natural look. Marker was used for the house light.
For the bat on the corner of the image panel I used 1/8 and 1/6” punches to cut the lower part of the wings rather than try to scissor cut them. I also punched circle to use as dimensionals so it’s raised.
Ink distressing is done on all layers but the designer paper
