This week, I decided to have a play with my new stamps.... this wonderful Hallowe'en plate from Artistic Outpost. It's so delightful. I love Hallowe'en, and I envision lots of Hallowe'en inky goodness to come.
I have several house shape templates for ATC size houses, I chose this one to use for this hanging piece and enlarged the template to around a postcard size. I wanted the Hallowe'en girl to fit on nicely. Once I decided on the size, I then cut a house out of this background I made a while ago... it's made by tearing pieces of masking tape and sticking them randomly over the card, then swiping with distress inks.
I stamp all my images in Black Archival as I really love the blackness of it. It's a good idea to set the archival with a blast from the heat tool. I usually colour my images with watercolour pencils using a water brush
