I have no idea why I haven´t been in Halloween mode this year - maybe too many things going around in my head right now. But I´ve been able to make these ATCs for a swap, and I´m really happy with how they turned out. Stamps used here are from Tim Holtz, Picket Fence, Stempelbar and Whimsy Stamps.

Type It


I´m this week´s host for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge and have chosen "Type it" as the theme. I couldn´t resist using this wonderful book piano stamp from ArtSpecially and to build my whole design around it. It seemed to me that the text about Tucholsky´s "Idea Piano" (Heindesign) was a perfect match, and I added books from Deep Red, "Creativity" and "Phantasy" from LaBlanche as well as some typed letter clouds from Sommerabend. 
Can´t wait to see how this theme inspired you!

(If you´re interested in the story of Tucholsky´s words, here´s what he has written in the Berliner Tageblatt on Oct. 2, 1919, using his alias "Peter Panter":
"Wir hätten sollen ... das ist ein nachdenkliches Wort. Wenn ich es auf meinem Gedankenklavier, der Schreibmaschine, anschlage, klingt es lange nach - es ist fast wie ein Thema, das mit vielen Variationen gespielt werden kann. Wir hätten sollen.")

Spooky Wings

This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is "Spooky Wings", so I couldn´t resist to give Mr. Poe some bat wings ...

If you´re coming to this blog regularly, you know that usually my art is quite colourful. I like playing with colours for the sake of them and usually don´t like to be restricted by a reduced colour scheme. But for this month´s Visible Image ATC swap themed "monochromatic" I took the challenge and went with my beloved ravens and crows and a greyscale colour scheme of course. I thought that a reduced colour scheme asks for some finishing touches, so I used a white pen on the ATC above and some white gloss spray on the greeting card below.
