Skeleton Lady

I’m loving the new Halloween stamps from Stampendous. While not a style that I would normally do, working with these stamps has been a fun “thinking outside the box” exercise.  More coloring with Distress Inks. Used Strathmore Mixed Media paper for the top layer. I use very little  water with Distress Inks because I like the darker wash of color so the paper tends to stay flat.

The inside of the card has a simple “Happy Halloween” sentiment, which is an image I created using PicMoney. The font is De Walpergen Pica.
