Some Halloween ATCs

I sat down today to make one ATC and couldn't seem to stop, so I made three. All images are from Altered Pages.
For this one, I used another piece of the Brenda Walton paper because the pad was still out. I inked it with some orange and red inks. Rounded the corners and edged with black marker. Cut out the image and adhered it to the ATC. I painted Copper Penny Twinkling H2Os on the pumpkin and along the bottom to 'ground' the image. Used a brown fine Sharpie to define the ground. Stamped 'Hello Punkin' from Artistic Outpost on the bottom in black ink.
For this one, I stamped a crosshatch stamp (Hero Arts) on the backgroun in black. Inked edges with orange ink. Tore a black piece of cardstock and inked in yellow. Folded Halloween ribbon in half so various words would show. Adhered them to base and added black piece over them. Attached image and added Stickles to jack o' lantern and stars.

This final one is my favorite! I cut a base of navy for the ATC. Then, I cut out the image and tore the bottom left corner off on a diagonal. Inked up a yellow panel slightly smaller than the blue with orange ink. Cut off the bottom corner on a diagonal. Spritzed the cardstock and rolled that edge up. Let dry. This keeps the curl in the paper without any adhesives, etc. Unroll and tear into 4 sections. Re-roll each section individually. Stamp 'spooky' by Studio G on orange and cut out. Adhere ribbon to the blue ATC. Adhere to the image to the yellow piece. Adhere to base. Add the spooky piece. I painted the 'spooky', moon and the owl with Copper Penny H2Os. Added bat confetti with pop dots. In real life, it is really shimmery and spooky looking.Thanks for looking!! Have a great day!

oh I just love these! I especially love the way the paper is curled on the last one and its sort of like an illusion with the navy in the background of the image on top. Thanks for making them!
