I thought it would be cool to use a part of the solid bricks background to make a wall to a building. This is my favorite card of the group.
These owls were colored as part of my copic demonstration at the show. I figured I'd put them to work on this card. This card also uses the no effort mosaic tile technique (instructions on the website www.starvingartistamps.com ) on the solid bricks background stamp with the ornate tooled leather background and the branch stamp.
Ah, cupcakes. This card uses a new set called Simple Birthday. I thought having two different sizes of cupcakes could be quite useful. The big cupcake is big enough to stand on its own as a focal point and the little guys sure do look cute all stacked up! Polka dot background is one of our background stamps too. This card was a serious labor of love. I didnt think it would come together but in the end it all worked out and Im really happy with it. I think Yapples is one of the most versatile stamps in the DF collection, he can eat stuff, he can yell, he can jump up and down.
This card didnt come out how I thought it would but what I love about this card is the zombie and the tombstones. I stamped them in brilliance black but they came out a little light. I used a pigment pen to color in the zombie to make it darker, add the RIP and outline the stones. I really like how these came out, here is a closeup:
This card features both the Classic Halloween silhouette (sentiment and graveyard scene) along with the DoodleFactory graveyard shift set. I realized when I made the sentiments for the DF Halloween II sets we left out an important sentiment. It prompted my late release of the Halloween silhouette stamps. I knew they would look really cool as a background scenic element.
In person its alot nicer, stop by the stamp show and visit with us in Indiana and you will see what I mean!

And one using the Flying Wedgie witch stamps with the Witch's brew sentiment.
All cards use brilliance black ink, copic makers (for the backgrounds too), and PTI prescored cardstock.

Consider making a photo card one of these days and merging the hobbies! Humm... is that a new future challenge?
Originally this card didn't have spiders and webs. It had a chipboard "BOO" on the top right. But it seems a few of us had the "boo" inspiration and I figured Id trade in the boo for the spiders and then I added the stitching. I told myself I really need to stop overworking this card and thats where I stopped.
Here are a couple of close ups:
This is not going to be my final attempt at the Swedish Collage Style. Im considering this my "warm up" card.
