Kraftin Kimmie August Sneak Peek Day 4 - Spooky Silhouettes

August Krafty Peeks....Day FOUR! Spooky Silhouettes!
Welcome back to Day FOUR of our AUGUST Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

We are back with the SECOND new set from artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen for our Fall and Halloween release!

This one is called.....SPOOKY SILHOUETTES!
This totally BOO-tiful set by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen is absolutely amazing! It features lots of halloweenie solid images which are PERFECT for using with our brand NEW Hybrid INKS!!! Especially the new trio of colours: Pumpkin Patch, Purple Petunia and Mossy Meadow! There is an awesome spooky tree silhouette, lots of solid image stamps and six fabulous coordinating sentiments!

 I used Spooky Sillouettes and Krafty Kolours ink


I masked off the sheet and left a circle and inked it with Yummy Yellow and around the edges Pumpkin Patch. 



Then I masked off the moon and inked Mossy Meadow, Purple Petunia and Purple Pansy.


Finally I stamped the Spooky Silhouettes in Wicked  Black.

I think that it is funny that the moon looks orange until you add the purple and then it looks yellow with just a hint of orange around the edges.

I finished this card off with some pattern paper, a tombstone border and a glittery bat button.
