SC291 Vintage Halloween

DSCF8659

I just love the new SU set called Greeting Card Kids….these sweet little vintage images are right up my alley!  I had this Halloween image already colored last week, but since I’ve been a bit busy this week, hadn’t had time to make it into anything!  Yesterday’s SCS Sketch #291 seemed like a good fit, so I made a Tangerine Tango card and added some new Love Letter DP for my creation:

I really love watercoloring, but it is time-consuming and I always feel like I am in a big hurry, but I did relax and take my time with this one!  I added some naked buttons, a little nestie mat and some narrow taffeta ribbon atop a Perfect Polka Dots-embossed mat.  She is a sweetie:

An aquapainter and reinkers, some Stazon and watercolor paper and I am happier than a pig in mud!  Thanks for visiting today; I am still glowing from my beautiful birthday celebration yesterday!  Thanks again, everyone!

I have had my eyes on these stamps too. They remind me of Dick and Jane from the reading books in the 52's. Your coloring is wonderful or water coloring is wonderful. I haven't tried that paper yet I better do that. I have been working very hard taking all my stamps off the wood. I have a couple of Idea Books from 2001-02,02-03 from the first time I went to a SU class. There are really some wonderful ideas in those books, and some stamps. I am going to be looking for some of them. One I really like is called Vintage Postcard. That is so cute. I bid on it at EBay but lost. I always loose. I am not sure how to play there.
Sorry rambling.
