Blog candy week one!

Hi Everybody!


We are doing something special this month. To celebrate both my birthday on the 19th and to help promote the release of FOUR great new collections of images we are going to be doing a spread the word blog candy give away every week during the month of September! You need to enter each week for each prize. In order to be eligible you are going to need to help us spread the word (read all the full details at the bottom of this post because it is important)


This week we will be giving away a complete collection of our new DoodleFactory Halloween IV Ghoulies http://starvingartistamps.com/doodlefactory_ghoulies.html


Here are a couple of new cards to wet your appetite...

Meet Morty, Morgana and Frankie just three of eight new characters available in the collection




The background panel and top of the card were both done using our Build a Cloud stamp. The top clouds were stamped in black in on the green card base and then the sky portion was colored over with a blue copic marker

The creepy cloudy border was done by stamping the build a cloud in black ink on white cardstock and then sponging all the clouds using a dauber. Once all the clouds were colored I outlined the clouds with orange copic markers.

Our build a cloud stamp is the one stamp that should be in every stampers collection!

Images used:

Meet Hugo:


Background: I used Martha Stewart's large rat punch to create the 3D rats background. I mounted all the rats and stamped images on 1/8" and 1/16" Stampers magic POP! tapes for added dimension: http://starvingartistamps.com/other_cool_stuff.html
