Little Goblins - watercolor style

Close To My Heart's new Halloween stamp, C1630 Little Halloween, is adorably spooky and the ideal stamp set to try out with our new watercolors.  Add our shimmer trim, and a little bling, and you have a super cute card for the little spooks in your life!  

1.  To create the cards, cut Watercolor paper to 4" x 5 1/4".  
2.  Paint the background of the watercolor paper with chosen watercolors.  Let dry.
2.  Adhere to a Black, or Slate, card base measuring 4 1/4" x  5 1/2" after being folded.  
3.  Stamp little spook with Archival Black Ink onto Watercolor paper that is trimmed to fit chosen stamp.  
4.  Cut a mat for the watercolor paper that is 1/4" larger than the watercolor paper.  Adhere the watercolor piece inside the colored mat. 
5.  Using the watercolors, paint the little monster.  Let dry.
6.  Stamp sentiment on watercolor background.
7.  Adhere Shimmer Trim as shown in the samples, or as desired.
8.  Adhere little monster piece with 3-d foam tape to the card. 
9.  Adhere embellishments in a cluster around the little monsters.

Happy haunting!
