Halloween Cards!

I have started on my Halloween cards.  I used a rubber stamped image from Unity Stamps.  I colored the image with Copic markers and Spica glitter pens.  So, if the broom fits, ride it!

Collage Stuff Yahoo Group Halloween ATC Swap

I used patterned scrapbook paper for the background.  I added a tree transparency as a part of the background.  The Witchy Woman collage sheet is available at Collage Stuff.  This woman image is great for Halloween. I added a bird made with a punch and accented the bird with Glossy Accents.  German scrap borders (Collage Stuff) were added at the top and bottom.  The text is from Tim Holtz Clippings Stickers.  These were fun to make!

Monsters, Oh My! Swap

At the artisttradingcards yahoo group, I'm hosting a "Monsters, Oh My" ATC swap.  I made a background with Authentique papers and vintage test.  I added a transparency of a tree, an image from a Cemerony collage sheet, orange glitter glue and a Tim Holtz Halloween Clippings sticker.  Black German scrap borders (Collage Stuff) were applied at the tops and bottom.  I've had this bat woman collage sheet for several years, but couldn't find a way to use it until today.  Thanks for coming to see my monsters!

Sunflower ATC Swap

At the artisttradingcards yahoo group, I'm hosting a sunflower ATC swap.  The background started with a vintage ledger page. I used acrylic paint and stencils from Tim Holtz and the The Crafter's Workshop to make the background.  I added strips of washi tape here and there.  The sunflower stamp is from Unity Stamps.  It's colored with Copic markers, Spica glitter pens and glaze pens.  The flowers were outlined with a stabilio all pencil. I added little jewels to each.  I love sunflowers and have a large sunflower tattoo on one of my ankles.  The sunflower is the Kansas state flower and I'm from Kansas originally.  Happy sunflowers to you!

Put a Bird on It ATC Swap

At the artisttradingcards yahoo group, I'm hosting an ATC swap, "Put a Bird on It." The background is made using an inventory tag, Distress oxide and Archival inks, Tim Holtz layering stencils and The Crafter's Workshop templates.  The bird image is from Unity Stamps.  The birds were colored with various artist pens. I cut the branches out of cardstock and colored them brown with Distress oxide inks. Tim Holtz chit chat stickers were added.  I hope you enjoy these little birdies!
