Pink Halloween

In honour of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month
as well as Halloween,
the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers have combined the two,
so the theme is
Why not join in and have some spooky fun?

The background is a smoosh of ink, a sprinkle of powdered paint
and a spritz of water, along with some words and washi tape.
Agatha was stamped directly onto the background
and again onto white card which was coloured, fussy cut and glued over the first image.

A quick swipe of ink around the edges, a folded black card and it's finished!

Stampotique - Agatha Witch; 3 Greetings
Distress Oxides - worn lipstick; candied apple; worn lipstick; wilted violet
Archival - jet black

Animal Antics

I recently acquired a new set of Katzelkraft stamps called
"La ferme des animaux"
and thought each of the critters would work perfectly
on a set of ATC coins.

I started by sponging each of the coins with 'pumice stone' Distress Ink.
Each one was then stamped with script [Archival Ink 'watering can' ]
and splatters [Archival Ink 'coffee'].

Each animal was stamped directly onto the coin [Archival Ink 'jet black']
and again onto white card.

Hamming it up for the camera!

Ducks come in all sorts of different colours, don't they?

 Smile!  Say cheese!

I used a variety of different Prismacolor pencils, blending as needed.

Bunnies are often two-toned, even if pink isn't so common a colour.

Start knitting ......

I really enjoyed playing with all these critters, such a fun crowd!
