Witching for a special on Autumn themed stamps?

Do you love Halloween and Autumn themed stamp sets as much as I do? Well...I have some good news for you then! I just found out that there will be a special in September where if you spend $30 on regular priced merchandise, you can purchase one of six fall themed sets at 30 percent off! One of the choices is the Haunting Halloween set shown here. This is such a cute set! I've been having fun coloring the images. During the month of September, this set could be yours for only $13.27!

This is another card I created with this set. I just love the little frog...and of course the cat on the broom! I colored him to look like my kitty. I used my inks pooled in the lid of my ink pads to color these images. To get the look of a spooky night time sky I used Blue Bayou ink to color the background, then after it was dry, I came back and added some shading with my black pastels.

On the top sample, I stamped the stars in black and used a little bleach in my aqua painter to bleach out the Basic Grey card stock. Then I went back and water colored the stars with Pumpkin Pie & Summer Sun ink. I like the way it turned out, but I think I need to come up with something a lot simpler for this years Halloween party invitations...can't picture myself creating 40+ of those!
