September Waltzingmouse Stamps Sneak Peek - Day 2

Happy Saturday!  Welcome back to the second day of sneak peeks for the September Waltzingmouse Stamps release.  Today we’re sharing a follow up to a very popular WMS set called Say it Loud: Autumn/Winter.

First of all, let me tell you my mind was swimming with ideas on how to use this set.  I love the first Say it Loud set, and this one has earned equal affection!  I decided on a Halloween card because it is one of my favorite crafty holidays, and because I haven't used Cicely at Halloween nearly enough! 

To create the focal image, I randomly stamped sentiments from the set to create a background.  I then stamped and colored Cicely in with a black Copic marker, like I did on this project.  But I thought she got lost in the background, so I inked her up again in white pigment ink and stamped right over the black coloring.  I did fairly okay lining things up and I liked how it turned out. 

When I said I had a ton of ideas with this great set, I wasn’t kidding.  Unfortunately my other projects didn’t get done in time because I had unexpected Internet outage and a few hours with the cable guy crawling around my attic.  Not how I wanted to spend my day off, but hey...I’m up and running now!

This is fab! I love the way you layered Cicely.. this is a fantastic technique. I always like to learn other ways to use these line images because I'm not always in a coloring mood! The text background is great, too. I just love everything about this!
