Hello. Kim here for Paper Smooches!
Halloween is such a cool holiday! Our Halloween stamp sets include some truly quirky (hand drawn) images and sentiments! I created a card to share today that combines both of our fun stamp sets.
Tips and Tricks:
1. Color stamped images with bold colors onto white cardstock. Color over the entire image with a light tan Copic marker. Now you have a scene that is more subdued than bold and bright. This technique “ages” the scene to give it a vintage look.
2. Use a black pen and ruler to draw a baseline behind the images
3. Run the same colored Copic marker along a string of bakers twine. This will dull-down the white in the twine. The ink in the marker actually stiffens the twine a bit, so the bow “holds” better.
4. Create a matching goodie bag by duplicating this technique on a white bag.
I have a special prize today. One winner will receive both of our Halloween theme stamp sets – Halloweenies and Spookalicious. Just leave a comment below to tell us if YOU will be dressing up for Halloween this year.
Congratulations to our winner!
