Summer is coming to it’s end, the weather is changing and the temperature has dropped. My first Pocket Letter in a Halloween theme really got my mojo back and I felt like doing something with creepy creatures. Stampotique has amazing stamps which look as adorable as they are cute. I posted a shout out on the official Pocket Letter Pals’ Facebook page and got 15 (!!) responses within an hour.
The first letter I created was for a lady who liked pastel colors. I tried to create something in her a style, but creepy and pastel don’t fit together in my book, haha. I really wanted to use on of my art prints I made a couple of months back. I went trough the stash of papers and found something that I could work with. Besides the background and the Stampotique images and doll images I found online, I had no clue on what I wanted to do. Some of the images were too big to fit inside a pocket letter. So I stamped them, scanned them and printed them on heavy weight printer paper. I used distress mini ink cubes and a waterbrush to color the images. The big advantage of a waterbrush is that the waterflow is very easy to control. Check out the following video and join me while I’m creating this creepy beauty.
