Denami Designs Halloween Blog Hop


Welcome to my blog. I'm participating in the Denami Halloween Blog Hop this month. I'm so excited to be able to participate again. I've been quite busy building a new house, but things are moving along and I've had some time to create again lately!! 

I love Denami Stamps and I thought this Happy Halloween stamp with the spider web and spiders was just too cute. For this card I used a technique I haven't done in years on this card. First, I stamped the stamp using White Craft Ink onto black paper. Then, I colored over the stamped image with colored pencils. It's a really easy and fun technique to use and it works really well on black paper. I kept the rest of the card relatively simple to showcase the cute stamp. The papers are all from Pebbles Tricks and treats. The circle dies are Sizzix Framelits. 





Be sure to check out the rest of the participants on the hop and leave comments because 2 lucky commenters will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Denami Store
