October Release Kindred Stamps

Hi and welcome to the October release for Kindred stamps.  This is my first (ever!) guest designer role.  And I can tell you I had a ton of fun!  My stamp set was Off to see the Wizard set. 




 I just hope I have done this classic justice.  I love the stories from our childhood, so it was nice to revisit this one.  The first card I have for you is the actual first one I created.



 
 
Using my SU Large Alpha dies I spelt the word OZ out.  This technique is all the rage at the moment.  The Eclipse technique. (Dorothy even has her glittered ruby shoes on).
 
 
The next photo is a CAS card.  I really love this style.
 


I love the grey scale colouring with that "pop" of red.  He is just so cute. 

 
I am a sucker for a good background technique.  So this card had to have something different.
 

Using my Colorburst powders I made this eerie background behind the little witch.  I intended on purple but my powder seems to have too much pink in it and that is not the look I was going for.  Black and purple would have been great but I have not gotten the black yet....lol.  There is always something in our stash we do not have. 
 
Last but not least........
 

 
I had to do a card with the whole crew together.  They look fantastic next to one another.  
 
I would like to thank Kindred for the opportunity they forwarded to me/  I have had the best time coming up with designs.  Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with. 
Here are the links for the rest of the blog hop.  Enjoy the ride and I hope it inspires you to create.

  11. OK, these cards are amazeballs. I can't even pick a favorite because they're all exceptional. I liked the stamp set but didn't originally think it was for me because I couldn't think how I would use them for cards. But now I really want this set!
