Never too early for Halloween

Wicked Wednesday wants us to create an ATC featuring a die-cut. I used a graveyard die-cut and spiderweb border punch:



Stamps used

  • Witch: Third Coast
  • Sentiment: Quietfire
  • Bat: Stampers Anonymous

Some spooky soot ATCs

Soot stamping is such a great technique for creepy ATCs! I used it to create the following ATCs:

Traditional soot technique


For the above ATC I used real photo paper instead of glossy crafting paper. Photo paper is actually not suitable for this technique, for it crackles and rapidly gets burnt. But I like the effect in this particular ATC.

Reverse soot technique

I’d like to enter these ATCs to the following challenges:

Stamps used

  • Trees with raven: Stampendous
  • Graveyard and sentiments: Cherry Pie

Another soot ATC

I’ve been experimenting with the soot technique lately (See also: and this was actually my first result.

All stamps are by Cherry Pie, except for Tim Holtz’ bats.

The current theme @ Inspiration Avenue is “Uncalled for“. I guess there doesn’t exist anything which is more “uncalled for” than death itself…

I also would like to enter this ATC to the “Dark/gothic and/or halloween” challenge @ Theme Thursday.

Thanks for looking!
