Simply Autumn

This week we have carved the first of our pumpkins at home - this was my son's creation for his school competition.

As the title of the post suggests this card is clean and simple on an Autumn theme.

I used the InkyDoodles stamp set Autumn Garden. Which has some fabulous Autumn images and this lovely poem.  I coloured in the images with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Colour Pencils.

I hope you have your pumkins ready too!

A Scary Night

As Halloween fast approaches I have relished in creating some spooky artwork.

First I created the background on watercolour card using ink misters and Distress Ink.  I used a Clarity Stencil to create the tree branches and then stamped the witch, toadstools and vine (Lavinia Stamps). The moon was done by applying distress ink through a punched circle.

Happy Haunting!
