Learn How to Water Color a Halloween Card with Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray

by Jowilna Nolte

Hi everyone, today I am sharing a gorgeous embossed Spider Web theme background using Fireworks sprays. One of my favorite techniques with Fireworks is to remove the lid and use the ink as a watercolor. First I stamp a grungy bird with VersaFine Clair. Since VersaFine is an oil-based ink, the stamped area will not lift when water-based inks are applied. This is an important feature to understand about VersaFine.

Hope you enjoyed this quick lesson. Create your own variation to make cards, Halloween decor, Fall, and other festive holiday crafts. Combining orange, purple, and black ink with a touch of gold creates a stunning end result.

Quick & Easy Projects: How to Make a Fall Card with One Ink Pad

by LeeAnn McKinney

Greetings crafty friends, today I am using my FAVORITE ink pad — Kaleidacolor. This 5-color water-based dye ink pad is very useful for a basic crafting project because it offers a variety of colors and the sliding palette feature gives you a lot of options. The ink pad has a lever to slide each ink pad together and then to pull apart for storing.

To create a beautiful background, just ink up the brayer, and roll it all over the card stock depositing the color down, you can keep going over it multiple times if desired to really get a great blend.

I then stamp out my sentiment and used On Point Glue to adhere falling leaves. I applied three dots of Gold Pico Embellishment to complete this project. I only use Kromekote Glossy Cardstock for this technique and it comes out perfect every time.
