Happy Friday!
Ready for a quick and easy card? I just love this greeting. And how true! Yum, chocolate! Why wait for a special occasion?

This week there was a technique challenge on Splitcoast called acrylic block stamping. So easy...all you do is smash some ink onto an acrylic block. I used a long narrow one and just because I wanted to, I used the side that has the grid lines. After you ink it up, you spritz it w/ a little water then stamp it. Stamp a few images on top of the ink (after it dries a bit) and remember to mask the sides. That's it! To fill in my card, I stamped the Witch Accessories using the same ink and added just a touch of shading.  For the greeting, I stamped, die cut it and punched the left side w/ a spiral punch. Since the greeting covered up part of the broom handle, I used a stamp postitioner to restamp the handle onto the greeting panel. I sponged a little orange ink around the edges and used a purple pen to doodle around two sides.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a "priceless" weekend!

Julie, you knocked that technique out of the park! Love the design and that you got the lines from the block to show up. Love you you did the broom, too.

I love purple and orange together for a Halloween card and this is a fun one! Always love when you can get away without coloring an image! ;-)
