Happy Hootin' Halloween


Hello! Thanks for dropping by today!  Today, I am finally rejoining the rest of the Design Team over at Inkspirational for the delightful Photo Inkspiration Challenge below!  Aren't the owls just so fun and colorful? 
 
 
As I considered my stamp images, I remember this gorgeous image I purchased recently from Red Lead Paperworks.  I am not real big into Halloween, but do love to celebrate fall and love birds of all kinds.  I decided to do a sort of "Andy Warhol" style card by selecting a variety of shades of Archival Ink and just stamped away!  I added a bit of Mustard Seed Distress Ink to the eyes.  Some of the ink ran a bit, but I remember Tim Holtz saying he likes to let the color go out past the lines, so I guess it has to be okay!  The sentiment is also by Red Lead Paperworks and the candy corn buttons have been in my stash for years.  I love CAS but don't feel comfortable doing it.  My card probably needs something else, but I decided to just stop here.  Please check out the cool cards by the rest of the Design Team and then share one of your own creations with us! Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Yvonne

Was für eine süße Eulen-Karte :-)

Und die gehäkelten Eulen unten drunter, die sind unglaublich.
Meine Güte, wie schön die sind.

Herzlichst Sophie

Yvonne, so happy to have you back! Your card is such fun, with the colourful set of owls (the eyes look perfect from my perspective) and cute little candy-corns. It's wonderfully cas; nothing else needed!

Great to have you back Yconne and I really don't think your card needs 'something else' - it's perfect. I love the 'Andy Warhol' idea - fabulous bright colours.

Love your multi-colored owls and the candy corn at the bottom is such a perfect detail! I am enjoying being a guest designer with you this month.

Oh this is such a fun card, Yvonne!! I can totally see the 'Warhol-esque' inspiration in this card :) Love those bright colors that you've stamped the owl image with...it's kind of a scary owl image, too ;) Fabulous Halloween card :) XOXO-Shari T.
