The theme at Fun Stampers Journey for September is COLOR!!! We have been crushing it with color all month long. Halloween is coming up and I thought I would showcase one of my favorite Halloween color combinations with today's card. I used Black Licorice, Deep Lilac, Pumpkin Bread and Summer Days. These colors scream Halloween to me!! My jack-o'-lantern and hat are stamped using the Trick or Treat bundle. These stamps are the perfect go-to Halloween set with a cat, pumpkin, witch's hat, skull, etc - and better yet, they have dies matching each image so NO fussy cutting!! I stamped the jack-o'-lantern and hat using Black Licorice ink on Whip Cream card stock and colored them with the Fusion Blender, Blending Brush and reinkers in Deep Lilac, Pumpkin Bread and Summer Days. I love how easy it is to shade using these coloring tools. The card base is Summer Days layered with Deep Lilac and Black Licorice that I stamped in Whip Cream ink with the Widow's Web background stamp. I popped my jack-o'-lantern up using Journey Foam Squares on a piece of Summer Days layered with Pumpkin Bread. The tag was made with the Reversed Banner dies which I ran through my Journey Platinum machine. I distressed all the pieces by crumpling them and running scissors along the edges. To add more interest to my background, I used Silver Silk which never gives the same look twice - I love it!!! Finally, I tied Black Journey Twine on my tag and added Journey Glaze to my jack-o'-lantern and his hat. Happy (almost!) October!!!
