Good morning and welcome to day two of the release previews - We are launching 8 new stamp sets on Thursday and this card shows the largest image from the new mini set 'The Count'...ok hands up who was thinking Sesame Street....
I was itching for a little old world glamour and so I created this silhouette image of what I imagine the Count would look like, I have made him a Victorian gent and given him a certain swagger, which I think is befitting the character, at least as I see it.
Perfect for ushering in a more refined and stately Halloween, the sentiment is reminiscent of a calling card and after all, The Count must request an invitation as he can't come in unless you ask him....
I stamped him in Chateau Grey from Versacolour which is an especially good 'breed' of ink to use on large silhouette stamps such as this one, in fact I find Versacolour good in every situation except where you wish to use copic markers.
I masked areas of the sentiment so that the name could be inked in Burgundy and the rest of the words in black. Simple card, but suitably chilling I think!
Can't wait to see what the ladies have up their sleeves for today!
Hope it tickles!
