Haloween ....

Hello fellow Crafters,

Wednesday yet again! Can you believe how quickly time is rushing by? Today the very talented Carol is our hostess over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and she choose the theme "Get your spook on" - early Halloween and this is what she said :

"I love Halloween and as a crafter it can never start early enough. So for the challenge this week I am sneeking it in a week early. So I hope you have fun getting an early Spook on. Carol x"

I am not very into Halloween as it is something that is not really celebrated here in Holland although the last few years there have been some kids going round trick or treating. Anyway I made this postcard:


I coloured this postcard by using a brayer and Distress Inks in Spiced Marmelade and Seedless Preserves. I stamped 'Barcode' and 'Fax to Wolfgang' in the same colours over the top. Next I dripped some water over the ink to get some lighter spots. Next I went around the edge with a fineliner and stamped the sentiment 'Wicked'. 
The 'Wicked Witch' was stamped on white card stock, coloured with copics and cut out. I also went around the image with a black marker. That way it doesn't show if you didn't cut the image out perfectly.  I then adhered her to the card and that was it....

Why not play along with us and maybe you will win one of the two $30 vouchers at the end of the month to spend in the Stampotique Online Store HERE. The only thing we ask is that you only enter one project per challenge and you do not use Digi's.

I used the following stamps:

Hope you like it....

  15. What a great holiday postcard, Corrie! Great focal stamp, of course, but I love the use of France's barcode for background texture, too! Nicely choreographed!
