The Horror and creating your own background paper with VDT Deni

Hi Everyone, 

It's Deni with you today,

I would like to share with you a card I created using The Horror stamp set. For starters you can purchase the stamp set here

I started by stamping down my sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock, I then stamped the same sentiment onto some full adhesive post it notes (this is what I use for my masking technique) I used my EK Success Cutterbee Scissors to cut the sentiment out of the post it note. 

I popped the mask of the sentiment down over the one I had stamped then stamped both my images over the top, it did mean the sides of the two images you could not see because they are masked off but It's exactly what I wanted. 

Once I had the images stamped out I coloured them using Copic Markers.

I cut a smaller piece of white cardstock and repeat stamped "The Horror" sentiment to create my own patterned paper, so easy to do and I just did it by sight rather than ruling it up. 

I ran the image through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Stitched Circle die, I actually carefully cut around the knife first and popped it to the outside of the die so it did not get cut off when I ran it through. 

I used Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink, just the normal ink not the Oxide and a mini ink blending tool to carefully ink around the outside of the image piece and the hand made patterned paper. I also had this black patterned piece in my leftovers tray which I had cut to size and I inked the edge of that also. 


I cut a piece of American Crafts Black Cardstock to use as my bottom mat layer.

Once I was done I folded down a Couture Creations Card Base using a bone folder. I wrapped a piece of black ribbon around the patterned papers using Scotch ATG, then adhered those layers to the black and then adhered them all to the card base. This is my Card complete. I did decorate the inside to match but I don't film all that :-)

Please head over and watch my You Tube Video here of the card process.
