Girly Halloween

Hello, a couple of really girly Halloween cards to show you today.

First up is a card TOTALLY cased from Betsy Veldman. I loved how she framed her focal image with the scalloped chipboard. I covered it in heat and stick powder and dipped it in some Martha glitter. The image is from 2009 Halloween tags, my first tag set and I LOVE it !!

Second card is an ABSOLUTE fav. I love my Halloween party set from Waltzing mouse. I actually used Christmas patterned paper for this..but I love the colours in Halloween Cheer. I used the witch image from the stamp set and i wanted to pair it with this cute little sentiment that I had kicking around....but wanted to have the witches mirror images. SO, I stamped one witch in Hibiscus burst, and one in Scarlett Jewel on Vellum...and the just flipped it around! Love this technique and definitely will be using it again if I need my stamp to change direction.

You do have to be careful when stamping on vellum - it's easy for you stamp to slip around...and when I heat set my ink to dry faster, I think the vellum slightly shrunk so the scallops do not match up evenly...
Hope you like them !
