Skipping Stones Design September Challenge

Hi Everyone,

for the coming week we have a fun challenge for you here at Skipping Stones Design - the theme is HALLOWEEN

Now I don't have any Skipping Stones Halloween set, so its time to get creative! Nothing better than a real challenge!

For my card I am using this hilarious Skipping Stones Designs set called Dandelion Dreams. I first masked the moon and then sponged with distress inks to get a spooky night background. I then took various stamps and first stamped them  in white. Then I moved the card a smidgen and overstamped with black. Repeated until I was happy. Added the "clouds" - white ink directly to paper. No sentiment, 'cause I don't have one. 

Spooky enough, what do you think?

Better than spooky...that night sky looks like an artist created it...and since you're an artist, you did. I know it's supposed to be Halloween-y but it is so much more. Just gorgeous.

Spooky and fabulous. Great depth and colours. Loving the ghosting technique and the over stamping with the black, works fabulously x I've been away on holiday and so missed popping in to your blog to admire your creative genius! xx

Spooky enough, Cornelia, although I might have cut wings off the butterflies and made bats out of them. ;) The moon and sky are a wonderful inking job.

This is very pretty! The moonlight looks great! Thanks so much for playing along with us over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

As always, your ingenuity is at play, creating an eerie scene from things typically not creepy! Fabulous...and, obviously, spook-tacular!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....)
