Well I wasn’t done playing yet…  It’s been a while since I broke out the Twinkling H2o’s.  Remember that scare when we thought Luminarte was going out of business?  I bought a bunch of little jars.  I think that was about two years ago.  Then they just sat in a drawer.  I keep telling myself that I want to use them and I finally did.  I started with black cardstock because I didn’t want to have to snip the image out.   Then the bleaching method but the bleached area didn’t get light enough.  This would not have been a problem for most of the h20’s I was only worried that the flesh color would not come out right.  I abandoned the bleached image for now even though it has lots of potential still. 

I embossed the image again in black on white cardstock.  I like embossing my image when working with H2o’s because it helps me stay in the lines and I need all the help I can get with this.  Well I have lots of Halloween dollar stamps to use.  I wonder what I'll come up with next.

Maybe I should think about setting up a photo booth or something.

Stampendous Kitty Candy Kiddo

Stampendous' Kitty Candy Kiddo Stamp

Ok, where to begin...  Here is the first card I have ever posted on any blog. Thanks to Archiver's 43% off coupon I was able to score this cute Halloween stamp for about $4.00.  I'm a beginner with copics and I don't know how to shade or figure in lighting yet. I did not have a purple to match my background paper (from Hobby Lobby) and a sharpie was as close as I could get.  So I guess I'll need to visit Michael's or Hobby Lobby with a 40% off for a better purple match. I'm not real handy with scissors so it took forever to cut the image out but worth it.

Well thanks for stopping by.
