Jack O' Lantern Card- Karen SessionsProducts Used:

Paper House ColorWays Noir Ironworks Scrapbook Paper
Paper House ColorWays Noir Accent Pack
Paper House Jack O' Lantern Puffy Stickers
Distress Ink: Spiced Marmalade
Sponge Applicator
Sentiment

Directions: Framed Jack O' Lanterns
1. Apply Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to ColorWays Ironworks paper. Using a sponge applicator, begin at the edge of the paper and rub lightly in a circular motion to blend the ink. Always start at the edge and gradually move towards the center of the paper so that the intensity of color fades to a lighter shade. Your goal is to achieve a gradient of color.
2. Attach your inked paper to the card base and then trim away any excess overhanging paper. Adhere a diecut frame to the middle of the card using foam tape and add the puffy Jack O' Lantern trio to the center.
3. Finally, embellish the layout with a Halloween sentiment.

(TIP: If you are new to inking, build your confidence by trying this technique on a scrap bit of paper so that you can practice the ink application method.)
