Halloween Window

Hope you've been over to Impression Obsession to see the new releases... Thought I'd use one of the new Halloween images (Halloween Window, #G2355) to play a few challenges out there:

1. Our Creative Corner - use purple on a card

2. .Peachy Keen Stamps - use purple, a zigzag, and a pumpkin

3. Stamp Something - paper piecing

The image is stamped on a piece of digital paper I created myself - the shading and highlighting was done with Prismacolor pencils and gel pens. The pumpkin was stamped on white cardstock, colored with markers and pencils, and pieced back into the scene on foam tape. You can't see it well in the photo, but I went around some of the leaf tips with a craft knife and flipped them up for some dimension as well.

The flu bug has officially hit our entire family - I feel mostly over it, but still have some residual sinus pressure and an occasional low-grade goes on, but those couple things give me a reason to rest. Next week we start homeschooling, and the campus begins its full schedule of activities. For more info on our ministry, you can visit our family blog!

Thanks for stopping by today.
