Spooky Worms

It's the 1st of the month, so it's time for the new releases from Doodle Pantry. As usual, Laurie has outdone herself. I actually created two cards for this release, so check out my other post below.

For this card, I used the new set called Spooky Worms. Okay, they're not really all that spooky...but they are adorable, aren't they? I fell in love immediately and knew that I wanted to use both worms on one card. I started by printing one of the designer papers from the set onto white card stock. I layered this onto another piece of white card stock and then onto a black card stock base. I just two rectangles from purple and red card stock and angled them behind the image. I printed the outline image of both the mummy and dracula worms and colored them using Copic markers (mummy - C0, E11, E13; dracula - E11, E13, R02, R08, C4, C5, C9). I used the kiss technique using the Copic markers C5 and C9 to blend the darker grays a little better. The image was mounted onto black card stock and then layered onto the purple and red card stock. Using a font called Chiller, I typed the two sentiments into talk bubbles I found on Google Images and then hand cut the bubbles and popped them up above the worms using thin foam tape. Here is a preview of this set.
