Greeting cards today

Hi, it's Robin here today with a some greeting cards to share.  I've been in a Halloween mood lately.  The decorations are going up all over our neighborhood and in our office, too.  The days are cooler and some of the leaves have already started to change.  The first card I'd like to share today is  a Halloween card, and features an image from the Ravens Take Flight sheet.  I combined this trio of birds with black paper from my scrap bin and some paper flowers.  Simple, but the black card makes the ravens really stand out.

My second card is a 6x6 Steampunk collage.  Several different colors of StazOn ink were added to the cardstock using a sponge sweeper.  Some were sponged on through stencils. 

The color was very dark and I added a white wash over the top.  A white gelato with a water brush toned down the colors just enough!  Images were added from various collage sheets (see the list below).
