I cut my Artist Trading Coins (2.5" diameter) from patterned paper and stamped Lost Coast Designs PMC Circle Frame on them using black archival ink.  I stamped Lost Coast Designs Creepy Dolls Frank, Mummy and Dracula, coloured them with Promarkers and gel pens and fussy cut them.  What a trio!!!

Thanks Lyneen. These little Creepy Dolls are so much fun. Hope you link up some of your stamped Halloween makes and join the fun here as well. Hugz

I saw the message you put on my blog...the marionette is a Digi image BUT the sentiment is a Rubber Stamp....so surely this qualifies for the challenge. Val

ionabunny said...

Hi Val, the rubber stamped sentiment does qualify it for the challenge but it will still not be eligible for the prize. Our rules state that rubber or clear stamping should be the focal point of the project. You may use digital downloads for enhancement on your project but please remember the main focal point must be rubber or clear stamping. Hugz

Okie dokie no worries!

Susan Renshaw said...

Hi Gail - finally getting round to linking up some of my makes. Hope you see the tags on my page as focal points. If not, no worries, I intend getting a few stamped rather than digi pages done in the next few days... Happy 31DOH!

Becca Yahrling said...

I admire that you can work on such a small area! These are awesome.

ionabunny said...
