Here’s a wintery card sent to me by Lori. It was actually something she made earlier, I just didn’t get a chance to post it. I’m loving the white embossed lines instead of the usual dark stamped lines – really adds a lovely wintery touch.

Lori said that she stamped and embossed on watercolor cardstock and colored with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. Just look at all that shimmer!!home-for-christmas-closeup-lori-barnettx

A fabulous card from Lori I’m sure you’ll love as much as I do.

Here’s what Lori said:
Now that Fall is officially here, I’ve got the itch to do all things Halloween. I used some of my favorite spooky stamps to create this fun Happy Halloweenie card. Hazel the witch is getting her boogie on, but I wonder what she is out collecting in that pumpkin? Hopefully some yummy candy! LOL All the images are colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The grass is stamped by coloring Spectrum Aqua Watercolor markers colored directly on the stamp. Then I did a quick watercolor wash to blend it out. Hazels dress has tiny dots all over it, which I added with a black micron pen. To give her glasses some dimension, I colored over with a Versamark marker and heat embossed clear. I cut out a few of tombstones and popped up for a bit for dimension. Then I stamped the full Graveyard image a few times on the card base for a tone-on-tone look. The sentiment is heat embossed.hazel-witch-happy-halloweenie-closeup-lori-barnet-watermarked

Count Bitesalot has never looked so dashing. I love the deep dark purple of the background and the added touch of purple on the inside of his cape. Bwa-ha-haaa (that’s the best vampire impression I do in text). :) I always love Lynne’s attention to detail – the enamel dots, the little white stitches, even the swish of purple over the word “bite”.

Here’s how Lynne created her card:
I’ve coloured the Count with watercolour pencils and covered the purple in his cape with some clear sparkle. The bat is heat embossed on the background (which is the same purple as the cape but has photographed totally different). A doodled border and some black enamel dots to finish.
