A Jolly Holloween

This little lady has got to be one of my most favorite old time Halloween images. The stamp is from Impression Obsession. I love their vintage stamp line. I stamped on off white vellum with black Staz-On ink, mounted to white cardstock and framed with the colored cardstock. Swirls on either side are from a Cloud Nine clear stamp set heat embossed in black. I'd love some ideas to color on this type of stamp / vellum without loosing the vintage feel. Let me know if you have any suggestions!
Thanks for lookin~

This cute little witch is so adorable - and I don´t think she is really brewing something bad.
You did a perfect job finishing this card - your accents around the stamped image look wonderful with it but aren´t too strong.
Can´t help you much with coloring this image. The only thing I can think of is using distress ink on the vellum to give it a little more "antique" look. But I´m not sure if she really need it.
Thanks for sharing this card with me/us!

I think you should try coloring on the back of the image. it will be a muted effect and very lovely and keep the vintage feel. give a try. It is gorgeous!!! Love ya
