Trick or Treat
This Vintage Halloween stamp is made by Paper Inspirations and is titled Halloween Traveler K8040. I stamped it on acetate and then couldn't decide if I wanted to color it or if I did, how much and with what? I finally decided to turn the acetate over and color the back side with my Stickles glitter. I used yellow stickles on the moon and green stickles on the thingy that hangs from the jack-o-lantern on the stick. For the pumpkin I used an orange sharpie permanent marker and added yellow stickles to the jack-o-lantern face. The background paper is some old Wild Asparagus that I had from last Halloween. Punched photo corners and green brads and stitching fills out the card. Last I decided it needed a sentiment so I stamped "trick or treat" with the $1 Michael's stamp.
I'm trying to decide how else to use this Vintage Halloween stamp. It is so cute but I am finding it is difficult to get a clear image, with the exception of on this acetate which really shows the detail.
Any use suggestions from those of you who are experienced using photo stamps like this?
