Oh no! Is Autumn Already in the Air?!

Summer is barely out the door but autumn is already in the air!  I already see trees turning color here in Chicagoland....and we are all feeling the chill in the air enough to turn our furnaces on now at night and add that extra blanket.

So....what's a girl to do but give in to the season ahead and start stamping some HALLOWEEN cards!  Somehow, that seems to make the chill of the season a lot less spooky.....

I thought I would start with one of my latest stamps from Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps....

D7982 MUMMY!

(I never could draw scary....so it's a CUTE mummy!)

I used TWO fun techniques in this card.  

First I stamped the Mummy on a white cardstock scrap with Licorice Colorbox®️ Premium Dye ink pad.  Then, instead of lifting the stamp up, I rotated it so I got additional impressions that gave it a look of movement.  How fun is this look!

Next, I grabbed some Art Daubers and had some play time on the notecard!  I created a random pattern using Colorbox®️ Premium Dye ink pads (Banana, Tangerine, Grape).  Then attach the layers with Beacon Adhesives

Zip Dry®️ Paper Glue.

Please let  me know how you like these techniques and project by leaving me a comment….
