Cicely at Halloween - WMS Blog Party


Hello friends!  I'm popping in today to join in the WaltzingMouse Stamps Blog Party.  The theme is "fall" so I decided to ink up sweet Cicely at Halloween.  I love her vintage charm and thought it appropriate to give her a mis-matched look. (I call it "Anthropologie Chic". ;)

The backgrounds were created with the Heirloom Patterns set.  I think the argyle and houndstooth are so fun mixed together.  I always associate these textiles and patterns with fall clothing, so that was also an effort for me to play up the party's theme.

I hope to see you on the hop... I look forward to seeing how the fall season inspires your creations!

Stamps: WMS Cicely at Halloween & Heirloom Patterns
Paper: PTI Rustic Cream & Kraft / Ink: PTI Canyon Clay, Memento Tuxedo Black
Tools: PTI Parisian Lace Doily die, Seeing Stars dies
