In Style Stamps Inspriation Wednesday

It's Inspiration Wednesday at In Style Stamps today!

Our theme is Halloween and my card uses the In Style Stamps Fence O Lanterns digital image that will be available for sale Friday, July 16th.  I believe it was part of the sneak peaks going on at the In Style Stamps Blog yesterday.  

This was another fun image to play with.  I wanted to use it to make a scene so I sized it to fit my A2 card with just enough room to put a black mat under the focal image, after all, it's a digital image and that's the beauty of digital images - making them any size we'd like! 

After printing the image I reprinted it on Eclipse masking paper.  I cut out the pumpkins from the masking paper and put the mask on, next I used a brayer to add the moon and night time sky.  The ink pads I used were Palette Lemon Tart, Palette Seascape and Stampn' Up! Night Of Navy.  After peeling the mask off I colored the pumpkins with Copic markers and the cold gray concrete under them.  The Happy Halloween stamp is by Hero Arts and that spider in the moon is a long ago retired stamp from my Stampin' Up! set Best Fiends.  I can't wait to try this again with a daytime scene!  

Be sure to stop by the In Style Stamps blog today to see the other fabulous creations by our design team, I'm headed there soon...

This turned out fabulous! Love the brayered skyline, my poor brayer thinks it is unloved.

I love what you have done with both the Instyle Stamp images I have the Witch and Cauldron one. I'm gonna have to get to grips with getting these cards made, and thank you for your lovely comments, Hugs Sarah B X
