Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
I made this card with the new, super cute set from TAC, called "Hedgehog Halloween" In the previous cards with this set, I have used the stamps in ways to make them not a halloween set, but this time I altered the stamp itself. I cut the jack-o-lantern face out of the middle of the stamp using my craft knife. This makes me able to use it for all of autumn.
I colored with watercolor pencil and a dove blender, the papers are TAC brown, ivory, and kraft, along with DCWV orange, and Bazzill green. I sponged most of the edges with Burnt Umber Palette. The scallops on the edge of the orange piece were done with scissors. The other two stamp sets I used are "Great Greetings" and "Running Stitches."
It feels good to be back to stamping.

This was may favorite image in the Hedgehog Halloween set...this IS truly scary now, isn't it? It made me think of my mom as well, she does taxes and book keeping for a living. She will be getting a least one card with this on it...I may have to think of some other fun ways to use this as well, maybe for some cute decoration.
When I actually have a set of my own in my hands I will add some more to this, but since it looks like a guy card to me, and guys don't usually care too much, it won't be all that much.
Stamps: Hedgehog Halloween
Paper: Just Like Dad Wing it Collection, DCWV cardstock, white cardstock
The Rest: Noir and Burnt Umber Palette ink, scallop punch, circle punch, white gel pen, water color pencils and blender
