Hello and welcome, Zoe here. I am delighted to be your host for this Saturday Step by Step with Frilly and Funkie. I created some mini Halloween labels for the current “It’s a Small, Small World” challenge using the incredible new Halloween stamps by Tim Holtz. Here’s how…
*The trick is to leave some portions of the label stamp untouched with the black soot ink so the vintage photo shows through for a worn look.
(for a darker woodgrain effect, rub the walnut stain ink pad directly on the cardstock and dry with a heat tool)
*note: different base inks will affect the finished colour of the woodgrain.
(for a more weathered look, lightly damp a piece of kitchen paper and gently rub over the surface to lift the walnut stain ink from the portions of the card the paint resists. Work in small sections so as not to get water into the recessed sections)
Step 12: Rub ground espresso distress stain to the edges directly from the bottle.
Step 14: Attach a loop to the back of the cardboard if you wish to hang on the wall.
Step 15: Use leftover labels to make party invitations, dare cards or put your favourite Halloween recipes on the back and pass onto friends.
I hope you enjoyed the step by step. Don' forget to take a look at the current "It's a Small, Small World" challenge and have a great weekend.
