Halloween 2017 Card Making Series - Fixing Mistakes on Your Cards feat MFT Fab-BOO-lous Friends



Hello everyone! Today I am back with another card and a video in my Halloween 2017 card making series, featuring the My Favorite Things Fab-BOO-lous  Friends stamp set, as well as dies and stencils by MFT and Avery Elle. Before going into the card making process I wanted to tell you that this card is full, and I do mean full of mistakes! I guess it was simply not my day, but I pulled through and I am happy I did, because I do like the final result. So I thought it might be useful for you if I shared the whole process of making and fixing my crafty accidents :P I hope this will serve as an inspiration for some of you out there to not get discouraged, and try not to leave a project halfway through, even when the situation seems desperate! :D And even if it doesn't work out, you will still have practiced!
Anyways, let's move on to the card: I stamped my images on some Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. I cut two panels out of some Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock using the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches dies and the MFT Stitched Triple Peek-a-boo Window. I used the MFT English Brick Wall Stencil and Distress Ink in Iced Spruce on the front panel, and the MFT Cloud Stencil and Distress Ink in Seedless Preserved on the background panel. I inked up the circle die cuts that I had left from using the MFT Stitched Triple Peek-a-boo Window with Distress Ink in Wild Honey. For some extra detail I stamped the little star trio from the Fab-BOO-lous Friends stamp set with Dust Ink in Wild Honey over the die cut circles. 
I stamped my sentiment and the bats from the same stamp set using Memento Tuxedo black ink and I assembled everything. For some added dimension I popped up the panel with the brick wall detail using some 3M foam tape, and I mounted everything on a black A2 card base. 

If you want to watch the card making process and see how I fixed the many mistakes I made you can watch the video tutorial on my YouTube channel. And don't forget to let me know what you think about it, and if you had noticed those imperfections from the picture, before watching the video :)



And that's it for today's post. I really hope you liked it and found it useful! I will be back soon with another fun project, and in the meantime I wish you all a great day! Ciaoo!
