Night Time Critters

I had coloured and die cut these adorable little creatures out for my autumn card the other day. The link can be found here. But it was way too busy so they have been sat unloved on my desk and need a card all for themselves

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

The images were stamped, coloured and die cut.

Using a circle stencil I blended the inks in an ombre effect, sprayed with water and splattered with watered down white acrylic paint.

I managed to smudge the edge of the circle onto the card base. 
This was fixed by using a nesting die on a piece of grey card to create an overlay.

The images were adhered using double sided tape. The sentiment was heat embossed and the card finished with Nuvo drops.

The panel was then adhered onto the cream card base

Thanks for reading

Happy crafting
