A Splash of Colour!

In the midst of all that dark and scary Halloween stuff, it has been a pleasure to pull out the most radiant colours and make a card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Pink, Yellow and Orange". Usually I don´t like colour themes, but I took the challenge to try some of my stencils here, combined with a sentiment that really says it all for me right now ...
The stencils I´ve used here are from Clarity Stamp, Art Anthology, and Cadence, the stamp is from Visible Images, and the colours are Distress ink pads, Pan Pastels, and Derwent Graphik Line Painter.

Apothecary Labels

This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is "Apothecary Labels", and on my card, you see the pharmacist at work, preparing the labelling of his drugs. I´ve used "The Alchemist" kit from Eena´s Creations for my card.

In the pale Moonlight

Have you ever taken a midnight walk, and if so, what did you see? When it´s dark, the silhouettes of trees can frighten you, and you shouldn´t trust your eyes ...
My postcard for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Moonlight" was made with Distress Oxide stamp pads for the background and rubber stamps from A Capella, Red Lead, VLVS, and Artistic Stamper.

Like my new Hat?

Starting with October 1st, I´m always beginning to follow my Halloween mood - that´s why this lovely owl needed a witch hat! As it´s a dark night, it had to be one in neon orange :-)
This card is my entry for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Hat or Headpiece", and I´ve used rubber stamps from Stampendous, Hampton Art, Scrollswork and another company I don´t want to mention because I´ve had much trouble with their service, and they owe me some money ...

Celebrating DSD

In 2016, the internationally celebrated Digital Scrapbooking Day (DSD) was moved from November to the first Saturday in October. Most shops offering digital supplies are throwing a party in their forums with challenges and games, and Mischief Circus celebrates for the whole week. Won´t you come and play in these challenges, too?
"Waiting for the Witching Hour" above was made for the "Clock It" challenge and features the clock freebie by Holliewood Studios.
For the "Witchy Woman" challenge you can decide whether your witch should be a good or a bad one - well, mine is definitely bad!
And for the "Fill Your Tray" challenge you can fill your printers tray freebie with any elements you like; in my case, it had to be books of course ...
There´s much time left to join these challenges and win great prize coupons, so come and celebrate DSD with us!

The Haunting

Summer is over, the dark time of the year is close at hand, and the peeps at Mischief Circus can´t wait for Halloween and making some spooky stuff! Their new storewide collaboration is called "The Haunting", and here are three samples made with just Songbirdy´s kit and add-on elements: "Downstairs" above, "Guardians and Visitors" in the middle, and last but not least "The Witching Hour".

Finding Wonderland

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Wonderland", I could have made LOADS of cards - but this is what I came up with ... for my card, I´ve used stamps from VivaLasVegaStamps, Zettiology, Joggles, and Crafty Individuals.
