Super scary season

As we’re approaching Hallowe’en, Rizwana would like to see some scary ghosts, witches, bats, spiders etc for this week’s challenge at Daring Cardmakers. Traditional green and purple welcome but branch out if the mood takes you that way!

I always say I don’t have any Hallowe’en stamps, so when I won a prize from Lost Coast Designs a while ago, I chose a stamp that might fit the bill! I think this raven would have done Edgar Alan Poe proud so could have gone for “Nevermore” but decided to leave it with no sentiment. I did play around with a sentiment strip but I liked it better without. LCD have their usual October 31 Days of Hallowe’en challenge running so I’m linking up there too. 

Stamping, masking, ink blending over a torn paper edge and a touch of Copic colouring is as complicated as things get here. I did doodle a border and splatter some white gold watercolour as finishing touches.

This is a great LCD stamp and you have used it perfectly here. Your background is just wonderful, and the way you have colored the raven is fantastic. Love the purple and black togather as well. Thanks for joining the Lost Coast Design Challenge!
