Background featuring the Krafty Kolours reinkers

I brayerd out a layer of hand sanitizer and then added drops of Krafty Kolours reinker in Wicked Black, Purple Petunia, Mossy Meadow, Pumpink patch and Yummy Yellow.  I then brayerd the colors together and placed a piece of white cardstock on top.  I then pressed down on the back of the paper to pull all the ink into the paper.

I did this a few times without cleaning my Gel Plate so that the later prints were more distressed.

I picked the final print, for my haunted background.

I added the haunted house on top of the die cut embossed fence (highlighted embossing with Marvelous Mocha KK ink).

I colored the Haunted house with Copics:
Black: W9, w7, W5 and W3
Moon: YR24, YR23 and Y15 with YR18 and YR14
Bushes: YG99, YG95, YG93 and YG91
Purple: V09, V06, V04 and V01
Fence: E18, E15 and E33
Clouds: W3 and W1

I finished off the card with buttons that spell BOO and Happy Halloween!

We have a total of FIVE brand new clear sets PLUS TWO rubber rereleases AND THREE new Hybrid Inks being launched this week!You'll get to see all the incredible creations for August as we share them each day this week! Be sure to join us at the LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday afternoon at 1pm EST! We'll be checking out all FOUR new clear stamp sets, sharing fabulous creations, giving away prizes and having tons of krafty fun!

Happy hoppin' and we'll see you back here tomorrow for more amazing new stamp sets!

  15. What does putting down a layer of hand sanitizer do? Do you do that every time you use your Gel Plate? Also, what gives the effect of those "scratchy" dark lines on your paper? I would think that brayering would result in a smooth look.
