JessicaLynn Original ~~ Halloween Stamps

This is the first, of what I hope will be many, times I will be able to use this very versatile set by JessicaLynn Original Stamps. The base is orange c/s by CTMH's Carnival collection. On top of the base is SU's Very Vanilla, but I used several inks and blended them together, then stamped some of the small stamps in the set and stamped the background. It's a very messy process, but I like the look of it. It's the technique I learned last weekend when I attended a class at my LSS. The monster is also stamped onto Very Vanilla and coloured with Copics (what else!)and adhered to a scrap bit of purple c/s. A little ribbon showcasing popular Halloween colours was the finishing touch!




I absolutely adore this DP by Heidi Grace. It's from last year, but I liked it so much I saved some. This time, I stamped the Mummy and coloured him with Copics BV31 and a Cool Gray-3. I used my VersaMark pen and some clear embossing powder. Once I had heated it up and it was cool, I blended some inks over top, cut it on a funky angle, and attached it with black brads. I cut varying lengths of different ribbons and tied them around the middle with some gold thread usually reserved for Christmas cards, but it worked well for this application, too! The ribbon is attached with a puffy glue-dot for some dimension. Make sure you take a look at the eyes. I used two different coloured googly-eyes to make him scary, scary! Did it work?
