Ghostly Greetings

This is a card from the archives, actually made last year. The stamp set used for the three windows is Hero Arts Halloween Two Stamp Set .

The ghost was stamped twice, and the pumpking stamped once on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink. They were then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. Can you see the fine embossed edge it gives you? Just perfect for watercoloring!

Each of the stamped images was colored using Tombow markers and a blender pen. Of course, you can use any waterbased markers.

A Marvy square punch was used to cut three squares from the front of the note card. The colored images were strategically placed inside so they would show through the windows.

The greeting on the outside of the card is from my very FAVE Hero Arts Halloween set. It's called Ghostly Greetings . There are three Halloween greetings in this set, and one of them almost ALWAYS meets my needs for a Halloween card!

I'm having a few friends over tomorrow morning for a little shoebox party, so I should have lots of new things to show you in the coming days! I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

So...thanks once again for stopping by tonight. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
