Goosebumps Resist Background Tutorial

Hello there! Today I have a card using my new The Northwoods stamp set, along with a fun background using Goosebumps texture spray from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko.

To start, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory card stock, to 3 3/4 by 5 1/4 inches. Then I spritzed some Goosebumps on the paper.

I've found that if you have your card stock close when you spritz, you get a bolder pattern and if you hold it further away, you get a finer mist. Also, be sure to clean the nozzle thoroughly after using to prevent it from clogging. I hadn't cleaned mine well last time and it affected how well it sprayed. Luckily, after using it this time, I was able to get it clean and spritzing perfectly again.

After letting it dry, I sponged Memento Desert Sand ink.

Then sponged Memento Rich Cocoa around the edges.

For the focal layer, I cut & embossed ivory card stock, using Spellbinders™Nestabilities® Matting Basics A, then sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink in the center.

I cut a mask from a sticky note, using Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities, then sponged more Cantaloupe ink around the mask.

Sponged Memento Desert Sand all around.

Then I tore a sticky note to mask off the sky and sponged more Desert Sand ink along the edge of the mask.

I moved the mask lower, then sponged using Memento Rich Cocoa. I kept the sponge dauber very dry, by sponging off on scratch paper first, so it would be fairly light.

I removed the mask, then stamped the tree, from The Northwoods, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Stamped the deer, also with Tuxedo Black.

Using my W5 Copic marker, I drew in some shadows.

 Then added to the shadows with W3.

I layered using Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate card stock and used Ivory for my 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch card base.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a fabulous day!

Absolutely beautiful!! I'd love to try my hand at a scene but am nervous about it too! You do make it look fairly easy!

I have a question....Do you use the same dauber throughout your shading?? I know you start with the lightest color & work towards the darkest. But do you use a different dauber for each color? Thanks for any help you can offer!!

Love your cards! The techniques used are inspiring. Just one question for those of us who really can't splurge on Copics can the Bic mark it be a substitute?
