HSSC 167: Vintage Halloween

I really liked the sketch featured at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week, but I seem to have flipped it over on its side and brought the circle on top of the fishtails. Regardless, love the inspiration. I had also browsed through my previous years' Halloween cards and came across This One. I thought I'd try to recreate it with a more vintage feel, some different colors. This is what I came up with...

Ink: Black Stazon, Burgundy, Razzleberry, Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Espresso, Sand 
Paper: River Rock, More Mustard, Espresso cardstock, Watercolor paper, First Edition dsp
Tools: Simply Scored tool, Color spritzer, blender pens
Extras: Pumpkin Pie glitter brad, Victoria crochet trim, pearls, linen thread

Here is the detail I made using the Score It! along the side of the card and then I spritzed it with the color spritzer and River Rock marker. Sorry it's a little blurry, I think it's actually more visible in the above picture :s

Detail of watercolor section...

I think that River Rock, More Mustard and Bravo Burgundy make a great color combo!

Oh how I love those Greeting Card Kids stamp set! I really try to make a new card each year with that little witch atop her pumpkin. Hope you like!
