Don't you look amazing today! Glad to see you here! So glad that you took time out of your busy life to come see me. I love having your here!
Today is Tuesday, and it is once again time for a High Hopes Stamps challenge. Today's challenge is simply "Halloween". Gee, is that right up my alley or what!?! LOL We were to use some of the new release stamps from Laurie Furnell. Here is my card for this week's challenge:
I built all of this from scratch. I knew I wanted to use the frog in the cauldron and that cool broom, but I wasn't sure how to use them together. Then I thought of a fireplace theme. I could put the cauldron in the fireplace and lean the broom against then mantel. However, I didn't have a fireplace stamp large enough, so I had to make one from scratch.
I used a rectangle cut piece of beige card stock and then "colored" it with distress inks. I then drew in the stones and colored them with colored pencils. I made the hearth out of dark grey card stock, colored the black stripe across the front to give it dimension and drew lines around to look like blocks. The blocks are mounted on foam squares as is the broom for dimension. The floor is just a piece of paper that had a wood look to it. And the "wall paper" is from a DCWV stack. I stamped spiders to give it a spookier look. I colored the frog, cauldron, and broom with colored pencils and oms and used Stickles on the fire. I also accented the green bubbles in the cauldron with some MS purple glitter. The inside says "Brew'in Up Some Treats" which is also from this series of stamps.
I love building scenes, and I did have fun with this. I hope you get a chance to play with us, or at least take a look at the great work of my fellow "Divas" at the High Hopes Stamps blog.
Thanks so much for taking a look. I so appreciate you coming by and your support. I'll see you tomorrow for the Wednesday Evening Post! Got lots to share!
Hugs to all of you!
