Squeezing in another Halloween post!
This trio of cards were made last year, submitted for The Stampers’ Sampler annual Frightful & Delightful Challenge Call. So pleased that the trio made it to print.
All stamps are Oxford Impressions and you will find, if not all, then nearly all of the stamps at That’s Crafty.A grungy layered appearance was what I was aiming for with it being all about the stamps, embellishments were kept to a minimum.All the papers were either kraft or re-cycled kraft/brown paper packaging, with paint and coffee and tea altering the colour.The actual background has layers of stamping, where I even stamped with Distress Ink (which is rare for me), misting with water and allowing the ink to bleed.This card is lighter with orange tones instead of the mahogany above.The owl is suspended on invisible thread, you can just about make out the thread. When the card is displayed it creates a sense of movement on the owl, purely for a bit of fun!Large stamped pumpkins make up one of the stamped layers in the background along with a huddle of fussy cut pumpkins.The final card.Lots of splatters bring a nice distressed quality to the card and also to the cardstock which had been stained in preparation of a stamping surface. I rarely colour in stamped images, all the colour laid down prior to stamping.The invisible thread makes another appearance, to allow the moon to dangle.
Thank you for your visit!
