The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

The Headless Horseman and Sleepy Hollow stamp sets at Whimsy Stamps aren't just for Halloween, they are also great for (year round) birthday and belated birthday cards.  Here's one that could be either a Halloween card or a fun birthday card.

For the background and barn I used distress inks to water color everything on Bristol watercolor paper.

The Headless Horseman was stamped in versafine black and the pumpkin head was fussy cut and I colored in the face with a SU! marker.  The sentiment and the cornstalks were also stamped with versafine black ink for a nice, deep, rich black.

I used the tree from the Sleepy Hollow die set and just snipped off branches to make all the smaller spooky trees for the background. the tree in this die set is over 3" tall and you can stretch it like I did in this post to make it larger too.  For the last touch I added some shadows under all the elements with SU! watercolor crayons.
