Can you believe it? Just a few short days and it will be Halloween!
My Halloween craziness continues as I am sharing with you some Vintage Halloween ATCs that I made for a recent ATC swap.
A lot of the images seen on my ATCs are from collage sheets I purchased through Alpha Stamps. Some of the metallic Dresden trims are as well.
This little vintage witch is holding The Good Cat Spell Book. I created dimension with this card by slitting an area between her arm and dress and inserting the little book under her arm before attaching her image to the background on the card.. I found the image of the book online, sized it to fit my ATC and printed it out. Then I covered the book in Glossy Accents to give it a thicker clear coating. I think it looks pretty cute.
This steampunk style vintage Halloween ATC is my favorite. The skeleton is from Alpha Stamps. Everything else I found online, usually from old Halloween postcards. I sized them to fit my ATC and then collaged them into this fun design. The background is some black cardstock with gold metallic stars all over it. I edged the background with a Gold Paint Dabber. I like the way the paint dabber softened the edges and created more of a metallic "steampunk" look. The gear is Tim Holtz' Mini Gear and I covered the clock face with Crackle Accents to get that sort of shattered effect.
The final ATC's background is done on kraft paper that has a black flocked harlequin design. The witch is from Alpha Stamps. The Witches Ball and Witches Dance sheet music were found online and sized to fit my card. "Wicked" is my favorite Broadway musical! I just HAD to incorporate it onto this card. I used Paprika, Black Diamond and Platinum Stickles to sparkle up this ATC a little bit. The copper Dresden trim at the top is Alpha Stamps. The copper metallic grid to the right is some stuff I had. I loved it on this card.
As this fun and festive holiday approaches, I hope that you've had time not only to enjoy seeing all of the "spooktacular" Halloween ideas online but that you've had time to actually create some devilish fun on your own!
Remember to take time to play...it's SOUL FOOD!
Happy Halloween Everybody!
