Halloween and Christmas
Good Monday morning all!!! Funny how I say that, since I don't know if anyone is reading this yet! I have a couple of cards to share with you today, that I made on Sunday. I had gotten this poinsettia stamp from Holly Berry House last year and I had not used it yet. I had seen a few really gorgeous cards in the last couple of weeks made with the new poinsetta stamp by Flourish, and it made me think of this stamp I had, so I drug it out and played with it a bit yesterday. I stamped it twice in versamark on watercolor paper and then gold embossed them. I watercolored them with real red and bravo burgandy and some riding hood red, then cut and layered. I added some stickles in the center. I really like how it came out, even tho I can't really get a good photograph of it. The card is big, 5 /14 inch square.
The next card is one I made with the sketch from Jen del Muro's blog.
I realy love that drippy goo punch and these pumpkins from the SU set autumn harvest. I also used the autumn apparitions stamp set for the sentiment and the spider. I started by stamping the small pumpkin from the autmn harvest set on watercolor paper. I then masked him off and stamped the larger pumpkin beside the other smaller pumpkin. After watercoloring them I cut them out and pop dotted them up on another peice of watercolor paper that I had sponged with some chocolate chip and night of navy ink and then used my aquapainter to blend, I cut the circle with my nesties. I really had fun with this one.
So what do you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
