Echo Park Paper
Wendy Sue Anderson
I decided to use the Memento inks Imagine Crafts sent to me along with a couple of my favorite Echo Park stamp sets to create a Halloween page today.
The minute my kids get home from trick-or-treating, they sit down to trade each other for their favorite treats and count up their loot. The Echo Park Paper Halloween collection was perfect for this one, with it’s bright colors and spooky critters!
For the title, I used the “hello” word from the Sentiments Stamp along with the adorable Logan Alphabet stamp set. The “hello” is stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle ink and the word “candy” is stamped in Memento Pear Tart ink.
To bring the spider die cuts to life, I added a white crochet string “web” to each one, stringing it over the top of the page, so that the spiders appear to be dangling there.
I also added mini black pearl stickers to give them eedy-beedy, shiny eyes.
I wish you could get a real feel for the AWESOME Black foil dot paper I used for the background. It is the perfect base for this spooky-feeling page.
