Halloween Digital Stamps

Above are some examples of the “Kitty and Spiders” AND “Bat and Spider” digital stamps used different ways for card making.  My favorite? I think I like the one front and center this time.  It’s the one with the cute bat and spider with the polka dot ribbon. It was one of the last examples I came up with.  Funny how an after thought can be the best design!   These were neat stamps to play around with.  There are so many different design and color choices.  My Copics came in really handy with these digital stamps, as always!

Lot's of Art Media On Digital Stamps

I printed the PDF (four 3″x4″) on white card card stock AND on a 90lb. watercolor paper.  I used some watercolor pencils but I don’t like the effect. That blue ghost (top left) looks like color crayon.  Instead I used my water brush (I’ll attach an image of the water brush below this post) to wet the ghost then I brush the color off the pencil and added it to the wet ghost.  That’s how I achieved the dark gray color on the ghost next to the blue one. No hard lines on that ghost. I used copic markers on the sheet that’s blurry in the top of the picture. I have LOTS of images to work with.  I want to attach some of them to Halloween party bags.

Score! Read more...
