Beside my Tim tag that I just posted-it has been forever since I have posted projects. On Tuesday I was hammering out Halloween cards that I think made it to most destinations on Halloween. Hopefully!
I try to make cards for about 17 people-friends and family that we can't spend that much time with because of geography. So as the deadline nears I go from making each card different to making many of the same cards. Here is one of those examples:
The stamps (witches and sentiment) are from Great Impressions. I used Tim Holtz's Distress paints for the backgrounds. If you look closely you can see each one is different. I used crushed olive, seedless perserves, ripe persimmon, and scattered straw for each one. I LOVE this color combo. I can't explain it but all of these colors are just gorgeous together! I bought these paints at Simon Says Stamp.
I used the same paints on the sentiments too. I just painted them without water whereas the backgrounds I used water. The Distress Paints react with water-so cool! I used black soot around the edges of the painted backgrounds. Then I used black embossing powder for the image.
These were lots of fun to make-and quick too!
I am entering this in the Anything Goes! challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Thanks for stopping by! Until next time my friends...don't drink too much brew.
