Scrapbooking Sunday 2
Hello! Halloween is right around the corner and Penny Black inc. has many fang-tastic stamps to celebrate that Holiday. For this week-end’s page, I wanted to stir things a little and use a non-traditional stamp on my Halloween page. Slapstick/Cling #40-099 soft wings is such a beautiful detailed stamp that, when used simply with black ink, almost has an eerie quality to it!
I stamped it on a piece of watercolor paper and cut it out. Why watercolor paper, since I didn’t use any paint on it you might ask? Because once it was cut, I slightly added a little bit of water and massaged it with my fingers to give it a lot of dimension. Watercolor paper allows you to do just that and the result is worth the patience!
That “spooky” but not too spooky butterfly was perfect to showcase our Halloween decorations. The title actually comes from our 9 year-old Lily who declared upon seeing our arrangement of pumpkins and corn stalks “it’s not spooky enough”…
Alexandra has more explanations on her blog . . . see you all tomorrow with highlights from Penny Circle!
