The last day of Waltzingmouse Stamps September Release previews is upon us (Gosh, that went quick! That one lost day caught me off guard), and we’re wrapping it up with two more Halloween stamp sets: Spooky Tree and Vintage Witch.
I made a little treat box with a matching card, for my friend’s kiddos, and I combined both sets on them. I simply stamped the tree silhouette on the gable box (cut with my Silhouette), along with one of the fantastic sentiments that come with the Vintage Witch set. I love how the tree image is overlapping the sides of the box.
The main image on the card was done by sponging the background with various Versa Color inks (they’re as good as Distress Inks for blending, IMHO) and stamping the witch and tree in indigo over the created night sky. I masked the moon with a circle die cut and sponged the sky first, then removed the circle and added some more yellow to the surface of the moon. I’m not too pleased with how that photographed, though. In reality the colours are darker and more saturated, much more pleasing to the eye.
I used Seize The Sketch #4 layout, for the card:
