Fall / Halloween Poppystamps Blog Blitz
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there and welcome to the Fall/ Halloween Poppystamps Blog Blitz. You have a chance to win a prize! The prize that I am giving away on this post is: Halloween Fun Stamp Set!  I really love the font on this set and think is perfect for Halloween. My card is totally inspired by the card Dave made ( owner of Poppystamps )  You can see his beautiful card over at the store or click on the link to this die , listed below.


I used Peerless water color paint sheets for my watercolored images and blended the background with  distress oxide inks. The jewels are adhered upside down to go into the card base, just makes it a bit flatter for mailing and I like the way it sparkles. ( you can see the bit of extra space below in the cauldron photo)


Everything on my card started out white but the card base. I cut the tip of the leaf off to add to the cauldron to look a bit spooky .( maybe like a claw) :)


I used three colors and just blended till I was happy , then added a few splatters of dark watercolor paint and some shimmer spritzer.


I wanted to show you that I cut the cauldron a few times the orange pot is layered twice and then I just added tape to the back of the purple one to put back in place, (the die and steam impression are connected). Last I adhered the two layer orange cauldron to the purple pot.
