Turtle Tuesday - Trick or Treat!

Wishing everyone a safe and happy first day back to school!

Even though it’s been many years since I actually had to go back to school, I still love looking at all the neat new school supplies kids can use! Is that weird??!!

First things first – I wanted to answer a question from Flossie’s Follies on the Night Village stamp from Sunshine Designs used on the card I last posted. Flossie – with this stamped image, you get the outlines of the shapes, and it is up to your imagination to colour it as you wish, and add the shadows as you think they should show. For this image, it is quite easy to think about the Moon coming up behind the little figures, so their shadows would fall in front of them. I tried to make their shadows the rough shape of their figure – to make it more realistic. Take a look at the photo in the last post to see what I mean. Hope that helps, and answers your question! And if anyone else has any questions - just ask - I'd be happy to help.

So on to today's card!

Happy Turtle Tuesday – and since it is getting to the Halloween season – it’s a Trick or Treat Turtle card.
