Harvest Moon

HARVEST MOON is the theme this week at Sunday Postcard Art.

That falls right into my need to make a few Halloween greetings.


It is a simple make.  The background is scrapbook paper.  I love scrapbook paper as it takes away the hard part of creating a background that I find so hard to do.  The moon is three shades of orange Distress inks, and my Nevermore Raven stamp over the top.  Then a bit more distress ink around the outside edge.

The correspondence side...


Again, scrapbook paper, then I stamped "Post Card".

Happy Mail Day!

Beautiful postcard, Annie. I love me some patterned paper, too. In fact, I recognize the paper you used on the correspondence side. LOL. And I have that same raven stamp! Hmmmm...thanks for doing half the work for me (wink). Have a great weekend.

Love that you are showing us both sides. Someone will be rapped to receive a greeting like this!

This looks great. It sounds simple but I've met simple before in its innocent disguise. You've definitely cracked the stamping thing. Three shades of orange and letters perfectly stamped.
The raven and the moon together are just perfect.

Wonderful post card Annie - I find backgrounds quite intimidating so I think I will remember your hint!
Perfect Harvest Moon - we have a full moon right now too!
I have been reading, reading, reading ---

The background looks good and your stamping is so clean. The distressed edges are a nice touch. Another great postcard.

Kay Wallace said...

Just perfect for this challenge,Annie! I love anything Poe, so this is special to me.

Createology said...

This month's Harvest Moon was full and so beautiful. Your postcard is equally beautiful. Great idea to use scrapbook paper for your foundation. Mr. Raven is rather dapper in his hat. There can never be too many Autumn "Quoth the Raven Nevermore" works of HeART.

Halloween is my favorite holiday (besides Christmas) and I love anything creepy. This is both creepy and beautiful so of course, I love it!
