Happy Halloween! This is Christine from http://iamcocoasmom.blogspot.com/ sharing a fun Halloween card - just a tad early! I was NOT going to jump on the band wagon and buy the Tim Holtz crazy birds even though I think they're fabulous! Nope. Don't need them. Haven't even made one card from the blueprint stamps that I HAD to have. (In my defense, I have practiced water-coloring a few of them Not a pretty sight!) Then, sigh, Mr. H. introduced the accessory stamps and dies and I pushed the 'Buy' button.
Here's my card:-
If you haven't tried a cascading card before, go here
for easy peasy directions from Flowerbug. The trick is to use a nice
heavy 'designer' double sided paper AFTER you have practiced with some
old, ugly card stock.
This was a lovely project to
work on a little at a time while it was my turn to watch the puppy.
(Just to make sure she was not chewing on her stitches.) I used my
Spectrum Aqua watercolors and a small paint brush to pick up the color
from an acrylic block. I love the vampire owl with his fangs and the HP
bird with his wand which is really the paint brush stamp with the brush
end cut off! The sweet little bunny bird's tail is the fluffy ball
from the end of the Santa hat stamp.
were written with my Explore and say "Trick or Tweet!" "Happy
'Owl'oween!" and "Flying by with a witchy "Hi!" Such a fun, fun card
Thanks for inviting me to share my project today, Sheila. Now, I'd better go watercolor some more birds and check on that puppy! : ) Christine
Bird Crazy Halloween!
