House Mouse Halloween Card & Altered Embellishments with Ohuhu Brush Markers!

This cute Halloween card will be sure to delight people of any age this season!

 

Today I will show you how versatile alcohol-based markers can be in your cardmaking. Not only can you use your markers to create vibrant, streak-free, blended images but you can also use it to tint your ribbons and light-colored embellishments to match!

 

My first tip when using Ohuhu alcohol-based markers is to swatch them all out on the paper you like to color on as markers look different on different papers. Keep this swatch in your marker bag so it is handy when you color.

I colored the image quite simply layering colors from lightest to darkest. This stamp has stippling (little dots to indicate shading) so I put my shadows there. Here are the colors I used:

 

Pumpkin skin: Y4, YR3, Y3, Y2 over everything at the end

Pumpkin flesh: Y3

Pumpkin inside BR1

Stem: GY5, Y3

Mice: WG1, WG3

Matchbook: G9

Candlestick: G9, G4

Metal on Spoon and Knife and ground shadows: CG2, GG3

Knife handle: R4, R8

To add a background I used make-up brushes to apply stamping ink in teal and green. You could also use a cotton ball and chalk to add color. It is quicker and easier than trying to color all of that area with a marker!

It can be tricky, and expensive, to find the perfect ribbons and embellishments to match a card but luckily if you have a set of alcohol markers you can tint the embellishments you have to match! Here I am using teal and green markers to tint some white seam binding ribbon.

Simply use the chisel and of your marker to apply a streak of color (or colors for a more interesting look) and spritz with rubbing alcohol to make the colors soften and blend.

I let my ribbon dry all balled up for a vintage crinkled effect but you can also let it dry flat for a smooth look. Alcohol ink will stain most surfaces so make sure to let it dry someplace you are not concerned with.

You can also color white or light-colored embellishments like buttons and pearls! The brush end of the marker works better for coloring hard, non-porous items.

Once all of your ribbon and embellishments are dried you can mat your image on patterned paper and tie the ribbon around it before adhering it to your card base. Then adhere your buttons and pearls for a finished look.

So now you know how to make perfectly matched accessories for any card or paper project you like using Ohuhu dual-tipped alcohol markers!

For Halloween I made a candy land coustume. I made a tutu and bought rainbow socks, a purple shirt, and hair color spray. Then I had pink converse that I wore and I also had face paint that I put dots on my face with different colors. It won't let me put thw picture.

My favourite part of Halloween is the costumes! This year I am going as Kim Possible as I recently rediscovered it and wow it actually stands the test of time. Though I normally like to go as puns, last year I went as Deer God!

What my younger sister and I always did on Halloween and still do is that we always make our costume ourself. It's because my mom don't like Halloween and she won't buy us customs, so we decided to just make ourself some. Our costumes are always DIY and made out of the strangest materials, mostly trash, but it still turns out pretty cool. When we realise that Halloween is around the corner, we collect some materials that we could use for our customs. We had everything, from ghost over to vampire to devil. This year were going as witches, my sister already got hers done, I didn't came to It, because school xD

    When submitting a post go to the photo option at the top. Make sure the photo you want is saved to you photo app. Choose the pick from photo album option and pick the photo. Make sure the photo is small enough though

An old tradition of my brother and I were to make what we called ‘ghops’ . What they were was jus basic ghosts made with popsicle sticks , napkins , googley eyes and a bit of tape.


Essentially what you would do is get a popsicle stick , take out a piece of tape, put it on the stick or on the underside of the napkin, tape the napkin onto the stick , put a pair of googley eyes on the napkin and boom . Theres your ghop .


My brother would often put corney Halloween  jokes on his popsicle stick but I would jus draw spooky things on the stick. (I was really found of scorpions so that was my go to)
