CREEPMAS DAY 9 with Monique

Welcome to Day 9 of the 12 Days of Creepmas organized by Smeared and Smudged.

Monique here today with a creepmas card and as promised on my bloggie a little step by step about masking.

If you came from my blog then you are on the right track; if not, then please visit Terra's Blog and enjoy the hop. The amazing Blogroll is also on the side bar.

Anyway the card......
Here is the finished result I used some Smeared Ink rubber sets designed by Rick St.dennis (btw the rubber sets are available as digi aswell at SI)

To create this scene I used Haunted places 1 and Dark Holidaze, masking tape, Archival Jet Black ink, Prismacolor pencils and distress ink.
After layering the stamped scene I added some Deco Art Craft Twinkles writer in Galaxy Blue.

For those who'd like to see the process, here a step by step, I made this after the card was finished and did just some quick stamping for the step by step, so this one is not exactly the same as the card, but you will get the idea.

First the stamps used, I did just use some parts of some stamps. It's fun to see what you can do using stamps in a different way than they are supposed to be used LOL

First stamp Frosty

stamp Frostie again but this time on masking paper and cut him out
place the mask on top of the stamped frosty image and stamp the church in a way it looks like it is behind Frosty. Leave the mask on frosty till all the stamping is done
Next the crack in the ice need to be stamped, I used part of a Haunted places stamp, Make sure the stamp is clean and cover the part you don't need to avoid ink smudges and ink up the stamp.

after inking remove the mask, flip over the block cuz I stamped it upside down
just thought that looks better 

next use a part of the tree stamp to create the shore, just try on a piece of scrap paper what part you like best.  Try to line it up on the right place, mine should have been a bit lower.  The shore is the most tricky part of this scene.
 mask the parts you don't want to use (make sure the stamp is clean first) and mask the space on the card you don't want to get ink on.
 remove the mask of the stamp after inking and stamp
do the same for the other shore

Next finish the scene by stamping some branches from the tree stamp around the edges to create depth

remove the frosty mask (and keep it at the stamp set for next time you need it)

So this is what it looks like without collouring, a bit stange cuz it's all black and white and that makes it hard to see where one image ends and the other starts. After colouring it looks like this

the stamps are coloured using pencils, the sky is distress ink applied using make up sponges. Colours used Weathered Wood, Dried Marigold, Tumbled Glass and a bit Walnut stain. The sun is Mustard Seed.  
I started with the sun and tried to create clouds using the sponges and the other colours.

Thanks for looking and see you for day 10

I will enter this card in the following challenge
