!! YIKES !!

DSCF0982

 The retro “yelping woman” image was all the inspiration behind this Halloween card.  The image is a rubber stamp and I found the best way to ink this type of image is by using a brayer.  It gives a nice even coat of ink, and allows for a realistic retro impression. 

The kid wearing the paperbag costume is also a rubber stamp, colored in with Tombow Markers and Prismas with Gamsol.  The “yikes” is layered on a yellow circle to tie in some colors and adhered with a foam square to make it 3D.

Hope this card is some inspiration for you as we enter “costume season!”

I am a papercrafter who attempts to view life at a tricycle pace. If you are in a hurry don't ask me for directions. I love making art to swap, especially retro art. Creating is fun, but creating for the purpose of sharing is fulfilling.
