Making Memories Spooky Raven & Witch

WOOO HOO! I finally got some stamping time in tonite! I'm allowing myself to do Halloween stuff again now since it's been getting cold out at night and is starting to feel fall-ish in Minnesota. This is my FAVORITE time of year, and I always enjoy the crisp weather, nesting at home and digging in and creating with orange and black.

Tonite I played with a new stamp set that I bought last month at Archivers with my coupon.
The stamp set is called "Spellbound" and is by Making Memories. It's a bit out of my comfort zone because I enjoy coloring line art images so much more than the solid image stamps, but it was fun to step out of the box and try something different.

This raven was a challenge for me, because it felt like he should be solid black. But then you couldn't see the great scripty writing going across him. So I tried to create a black feeling by using the black background paper behind him. I also used some Making memories paint in the background to help him pop off the paper more. I love the font of this Happy Halloween sentiment stamps.

The orange dots are more of the floral arrangement "luster gems" by Darice (given to me by friend Carol). I colored them in with a Sanguine Copic Marker. Patterned papers also by Making Memories, from the "Spellbound line.
