Deadly Love Square Card from The Sassy Club

Wednesday, October 19, 2022

I am going to toot my own own horn here, but I love my coloring on this card! I have been working really hard at improving how I color so images turn out how I imagine them in my head and I just love this sweet Deadly Love card using The Sassy Club stamps.

My card was inspired by Craft Roulette and this last week's parameters were a square project; black background + 3; sweater(s) or jacket(s); and include marker(s). I went with a classic square card as the project with the dimensions of 4-1/4 x 4-1/4" so that way it would still fit in an A2 sized envelope.  While I did ink the edges of my card base with a blue ink, the background of the center of the card is black and I used shades of blue, red and green on my card (I cheated a little by using blue and red together to make purple on the butterfly).

The Lawn Fawn moon was die cut and I added grey and blue Distress Oxide inks to create a shadow and glow to the moon. I also cut out two trees from Heffy Doodle's Elm Street Dies and trimmed them in half to glue them to the edges of the black background. I kept trimming and adding the leftover branches to create a forest of spooky trees behind my characters and in front of the moon. My images were stamped and colored in with alcohol markers; my male character on the left is wearing a jacket and that covered the last two parameters!

I added some glitter Pops of Color using a thin paint brush along the edge of the moon and on edges of there trees to bring in more blue and to create a moonlight glow (and of course because I needed something to have sine). My card turned out so sweet and I just love it! How do you think I did with the parameters? Did you participate this week, too?
