Alpha Stamps Slide Mailer Swap

I can't believe I am already in the Halloween mood, and it is still a month away! I participated in a Slide Mailer Swap with the Alpha Stamps Yahoo Group. I have never created anything with a slide mailer, although I've had some for over a year now. I really enjoyed this project and hope that whoever receives these thinks they are spooktacular! Sorry, I couldn't resist!

Now I've always loved black cats, especially during Halloween. But now I seem to be obsessed with skulls as well. Makes my Halloween art work much easier.

I took some cheese cloth and dipped it down into some watered down black paint to make it gray. I wrapped this creepy dude all up with it to add to his shredded cape.

I think these little coffin charms are so cool! You open it up and there's a skeleton inside.

I really like this little devil dude from the collage sheet Skeleton Slides. He seems so comical and fun.

I don't think this guy feels the same way, lol.

The above images come from the stamp set Poison. After stamping the images, I painted them with different colors of Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink. I love that stuff!

I love black cats. Not only in vintage Halloween decor, but the real deal as well. I have two black cats, full black and if anything they have brought me good luck. Then again, Friday the 13th always seems to be a good day for me as well. And look, another little skeleton friend!

The stage in the background (Red Slide Mailer Curtains) actually contains several layers. and I really like the way the singing cat pops off of the page.

This was a fun swap and it was great to get in touch with my "dark side" for a bit. But I'm far from finished. Stayed tuned for some Halloween Marie ATCs.
