The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
I used water-based markers to colour the candy corn image, and I added the glossy accents as an afterthought so the ink bled. I was a bit annoyed when I saw it the next morning but I decided to just go with it. I still think the card is bright and fun. :)
With my next card I decided to just use a sentiment along with my favourite Halloween die:
I also had fun with my last card:
I love how this one turned out. I started with the cat and originally I had stamped it in black with the intention of colouring it. I found, though that when trying to colour a black line image with black marker that the image was lost. To remedy this I decided to emboss the image in white on black cardstock.
For the background I trimmed the panel from a Halloween themed paper pad and crumpled it up tightly before flattening it out and inking edges and some of the wrinkles with creamy brown ink on a blending tool, and then swiping most of the same spots with a juicy black ink pad. One of the funnest backgrounds I've done in a while! :)
I hope you enjoyed my cards! If you like this set and the other sets coming out this month be sure to visit the Mark's Finest Papers store. They have a lot more lovely sets and card making products that you will enjoy!
