STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS' CHALLENGE 121: HALLOWEEN

It's Wednesday and, by now you know, I am doing the Stampotique "happy dance!"  The Stampotique Designers' Challenge today is hosted by Carol Fox, who is somewhat of a Halloween buff, so...
"I particularly chose the month of October to host the challenge as I love Halloween. It was the quirky off beat stamps of Daniel Torrente that first drew me to Stampotique all those years ago, as it then seemed to me that I could make Halloween themed items all year with his gothic style stamps and no one would realize that was what I was doing. I think I may have broken the record on my make for the challenge with the most rubber stamps used on one item, but it was hard as there were just so many to choose from. Hope you all enjoy the challenge and get your spook on for the whole month."
Since I have three grandchildren and only one card made, it was easy for me to decide to make a Halloween card.  This one is for my granddaughter Angie.  The play on words in the quote may escape her since she is only 3, but the shiny, sparkly, iridescent image and pumpkins will not!  I created all this pizzazz by using Wink of Stella in clear over the inked images.  (The scanning process took away the shimmer, but it's there!)  I have used Stampotique Originals' Relaxin' and the three pumpkin images from the Halloween Cube 2.

 

If you would like a chance to win one of two $30 gift certificates from Stampotique Originals this month, play along with this and other challenges.  Details here!  You do not have to use Stampotique Originals' stamps, but if you have them, why not! Digitally created art does not qualify for the gift certificates.

Cheers!
