A Quiet Night

I was a little disappointed that we had only 20 or 25 Trick or Treaters come to our door, but getting to stamp one last Halloween card took a bit of the blues away! I wanted to squeeze in one more of Leigh O'Brien's Freaky Friday cards, and was able to combine it with my friend Tammy's Color Throwdown.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Black Stazon, then colored in the background using Lovely Lilac. For the pumpkins I layered color on using an aquapainter, first with Marigold Morning, then Only Orange, Pumpkin Pie, and Ruby Red. I embossed the Trick or Treat sentiment in black EP, tied on some ribbon and added on a couple of little tags from my left overs pile. What I ended up with is not exactly what I had in mind, but I guess the journey is as important as the destination, right?! I had a good time!

Stamps: Inkadinkado
Paper: Watercolor paper, K & Co DP, Basic Black (SU), scrap of dark purple
Inks: Lovely Lilac, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Marigold Morning, Only Orange, VersaMark
Accessories: black EP, ribbons, fibers, buttons

I hope you are having a wonderful All Saints' Day! Come back again!
