Even though Labor Day is considered the unofficial end to summer, it is definitely not true here in the deep south. Not one touch of fall - just unrelenting summer. Despite that I have a Halloween/Fall card today using the ever so cute Papertrey Ink Spooky Smiles. This set is one of the two Halloween sets I purchased this year.
After stamping the images onto Neenah cardstock, I cut out with the matching dies and then colored with Copic markers. I watercolored the background with Wild Honey and Crushed Olive distress inks and then splattered with a touch of Forest Moss. I cut the background out with a stitched die and then attached to the card base. The images were clustered together using a bit of glue and foam tape. The sentiment was stamped onto a kraft cardstock rectangle. Even though I consider this a Halloween card, I was trying for a more muted, fall look.
