I know today is Halloween, but I was just feeling a bit mellow about it. Could that be a result of being with students all day that were super costumed out and completely mental about it? Or maybe because I went back to take yearbook pictures that evening during the carnival and dance? Sounds about right. Let’s just settle down a bit, but still enjoy the holiday.
This stamp is just too funny. I think that I have shown myself that even though there is definitely a Halloween theme with the stamp, it doesn’t have to be used that way, and that always makes me happy.
Instead of focusing on the holiday, I went with a focus on the brooms themselves. This included giving the background a run through with the woodgrain embossing folder, wooden handles on the broom. Also, I did a little piercing around the brooms themselves so I could thread some of the ever so lovely linen thread around the bristles and give it some dimension. I think that looks pretty darn cool. All kinds of dimension going on here. What a great card!
Have a creative day!
