halloween in 1 Layer

Planning a little ahead but I am making Halloween cards for my grandchildren. Since I don't see them much, I send little treat packages occasionally. So this is a clean and simple1 layer card as challenged by ThePaper Players
I scanned this instead of photographing, hoping you could see more details. The house is a $1.00 stamp I got for half price after Halloween last year--what a bargain. I colored it with colored pencils in purple, neon green, orange, and yellow. The witch has pumpkins, skeletons, and stars swirling in her skirt. I did some highlights there with orange and gold star gel pens. The witch and sentiment are Inkadinkadoo Halloween collection. The edges are sponged with orange and purple inks to soften a little. I did use an additional layer of orange paper inside. The sentiment is done via computer and then stamped with spiders and web.



  1. Wow, a 50 cent stamp, what a bargain! Nice OLC, I like how you colored the house and the greeting inside is really cute. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players, Donna!

  2. Oh my goodness, I love this witch stamp! I would like a skirt like that, lol! Nice coloring of the house and a good use of one layer! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!
