Kindred Stamps Release Blog Hop: Happy Haunting!

Oh my gosh! It is Kindred Stamps release time!! And it is such a great one!! I get to feature a stamp set that is all about the a certain ghastly ghost in striped pants. Don't say his name! You may end up singing about Mr. Tally Man!

My first project is a treat box that I sponged and stamped to make it look like there was a ghost rising out of the mist. 

I did this on all four sides, with the ghost rising higher on each panel. 

Then I colored the image with some Copics, cut him out, and popped him on the box. A few dabs of Morning Dew Nuvo drops added just the right touch. 

When I first got this set, I stamped out a bunch of images and started coloring them from memory. I initially thought the girl was the green skinned receptionist in the movie. So that is where this color scheme came from. I still really like her.

The Tufted embossing folder and clear on black embossed stripes are supposed to give this a theatrical feel. And I could not resist the Red Berry Nuvo drops, they matched perfectly!

Quick tip: if your ink pad is a little too juicy, and you start to lose some of the details in the image (like the teeth on mister striped pants), use a sponge to dab off some of the excess ink before you stamp it down. Worked wonders from me!

Last up is this fun card! I wanted something that would appeal to the goth child that my daughter is, but is not really a Halloween card. I dug out a retired embossing folder for the web. 

My Copic coloring on this little lady is much better on this card, don't you think? Practice does really help 😉

Your cards are great! Your Nuvo drops are so perfectly done on the tufted embossing! The match is really good! I think the coloring was good on all of the cards. I know we tend to be our own worst critic!
