HSSC 167: Vintage Halloween

I really liked the sketch featured at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week, but I seem to have flipped it over on its side and brought the circle on top of the fishtails. Regardless, love the inspiration. I had also browsed through my previous years' Halloween cards and came across This One. I thought I'd try to recreate it with a more vintage feel, some different colors. This is what I came up with...

Ink: Black Stazon, Burgundy, Razzleberry, Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Espresso, Sand 
Paper: River Rock, More Mustard, Espresso cardstock, Watercolor paper, First Edition dsp
Tools: Simply Scored tool, Color spritzer, blender pens
Extras: Pumpkin Pie glitter brad, Victoria crochet trim, pearls, linen thread

Here is the detail I made using the Score It! along the side of the card and then I spritzed it with the color spritzer and River Rock marker. Sorry it's a little blurry, I think it's actually more visible in the above picture :s

Detail of watercolor section...

I think that River Rock, More Mustard and Bravo Burgundy make a great color combo!

Oh how I love those Greeting Card Kids stamp set! I really try to make a new card each year with that little witch atop her pumpkin. Hope you like!

Trio in Cherry

Hello! Oh, where have I been? Well moving is the latest thing...but amidst everything I have been creating here and there. Boy I can't wait until things are settled in! Regardless, I've got a number of projects to share with you. I've seen others taking traditional paper crafting and mixing it with digital scrapbooking, and couldn't wait to try it. Here is one of the projects I've done that falls under the Hybrid umbrella.


Digital Ink: Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Paper: Whisper White & Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Christmaslane dsp
Tools: My Digital Studio
Extras: gold brad

Here are some close up details of the Hybrid card...

I find this particular dsp pattern hard to use as a background because it's so busy but it seems to work well here.

Hope you have a good day!
