Tribute to Black and White Cinema

I love the older black and white scary movies so I thought a card depicting some of the greats like Nosferatu (1922), The Old Dark House (1932), Psycho (1960), would be a fun change of pace.  Using the amazing image from Nicecrane Designs, I've incorporated this Halloween Greeting from the digital images of Vintage Halloween. Black and white colors for the majority and speck of gold to highlight. Needing a little sumpin' sumpin' in the bottom right corner, I've cropped the bat from the original image and placed it under a clear dot and mounted to a small rosette. I think it's turned out kinda classy and eerie all at the same time.
 
Stop on by Nicecrane Designs and say hello to Ignacio!
You honestly won't believe the amazing selection of incredible digital stamps in his store.

 
 
Thank you for your visits. They always give me warm fuzzies! :)
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
Lisa xx

Love the concept behind this L2! You've made this image stand out in the most marvelous way and I know Ignacio is thrilled with how this turned out. :-) I love the black & white vintage images in this set and you've maximized the WOW factor (big time) on this card.
Big Hugs to you,

Love this take on Halloween spookiness, Lisa - tapping into the real scares of Psycho and Nosferatu, brilliant! And it's such a chic, glamorous card too - Hollywood as it should be... i love Ignacio's work over at Nicecrane too - have some that I should really get round to playing with, thanks for the nudge!
