We are the weirdos

Hello everyone,

I don't know about you but this strange world we live in at the moment made me want to do a different, for me, weird project, so I have made a postcard with a Halloween theme.. :o)

Here's how I made it:

I heat embossed a text stamped and the spiderweb on a piece of Mixed Media card stock, using white for the text and silver for the web. 

Next I dunked the card into these colours Distress Oxide inks, drying in between. 

Here is a detail of how it looks. 

Next I added a little black stamping and inked the edges of the card with a blending tool and the brown Distress Oxide. I then stamped the raven and the sentiment on a piece of paper. I coloured the white bits of the bird with pencils. 

And here it is all put together. I matted the sentiment onto black card stock before adhering it and also added some doodle lines along some of the edges. 

I have used the following stamps:

Other materials:
MM card stock 
scrap of black card stock
WOW embossing powder in white and silver
Distress Oxide inks in Ground Espresso, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmelade
Versafine Clair Ink - Nocturne
Prisma colour pencils

Thank you for stopping by today !

This is a gorgeous card! I'm a noob with the Distress Oxides; can you easily explain "dunk"?
