Strange Beauty

With Halloween almost upon us my mind can't help turn to the strange and spooky.

Here are a couple of very quick spooky ATC's 
This one uses a stamp from Inkadinkado. I've had the set for ages as I just couldn't resist the quirky images, but this was the first time I've used it. The quote round the edge is "there is no beauty without some strangeness" which is a variation on an Edgar Allen Poe quote and very fitting for this fab octopus. It is coloured mostly with watercolour pencils.

For the second one I used a Sheena Douglas stencil and a gorgeous tree stamp from a Crafty Individuals set. It was coloured with a mixture of watercolour pencils and black and white Neocolor crayons.

I'd like to enter these into the Craft Barn weekly challenge.

Happy Halloween to all!


  1. I love the quote, I need to try to remember that one. Both ATCs are perfect for the Halloween theme. My favourite is the skyline one. These have inspired me to make more ATCs, I've not done any in ages.

  2. Fabulous ATCs and I've never had that quote before but I really like it, very true too!! Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.
