Witchy Halloween

I can't believe it is already time to start creating for Halloween. It is still blazing hot here and I feel more like swimming than trick-or-treating but I pulled out the Halloween stuff anyway.

I love the Halloween stamps Inkadinkado has out there. My all time favorite though is the witch on her broom. I think it is a stunning image and makes a great card with little effort. For some reason I always feel like witches should be paired with purple. I have no idea why but I do. I envisioned my witch on this card flying in the wee hours of the morning.

This card is fairly simple. I started to brayer it but was too lazy to drag the brayer out and clean up after it. I stamped my images in Archival black and then sponged the purple on starting with the lightest color. I finished it off with the stardust pen. Just a card base and one layer of white card stock.


Paper: Black and White (?)

Stamps: Inkadinkado

Ink: Eggplant, Grape and Plum (Inque Boutique, Colorbox) Archival Black
