Haunting Halloween Stamps!

CS Designs is a name you need to know if you don’t already.  CS Designs is owned by an exceedingly talented artist, Chris Stern, who decided not to long ago to share her art in the form of digital stamps.   BUT these are NOT your average digital stamps.  These stamps are so unique and funky, certainly one of a kind in the digital stamp world.  She offers different collections of remarkable digis.  If you like distinctive, unusual art you are going to flip over CS Designs.
 Since Halloween is just around the corner I had to share the latest additions to her digital stamp shop, HAUNTING APPARITIONS and HALLOWEEN GOTH & MACABRE SENTIMENTS!  Chris describes these stamps as “Paranormal, Ghoulish, Goth and Macabre”.  She has a wonderful selection of images as well as haunting sentiments and they all work together or separately. 
Sharon Rogers, CS Designs Head Designer, has graciously agreed to share some of her creepy creations with you featuring just a few of the new stamps.   To see the complete collection be sure to go to CS DESIGNS.
The first creation features the digi Solitaire Ancient Embalming Treatments.  What is not to love about these?  You need to take note of the "mummy" wrapping too, great embellishment.

Next is Sharon's card with the digital Paranormal Medium Agency and she also used the Poison Bottle digi.  Oh I just love this card with the purple and shades of orange The chain attaching the bottles is a clever idea.  This card just reaches out and grabs you.

This card shows us the Solitaire Mask of Webs and the Step Into My Parlor digitals.  I really like how she used just two colors and the white webbing completes the eerie look of the card.

Never fear, CS Designs also offers a whimsical take on Halloween with the digital Stamps, PRISCILLA's HALLOWEEN.  These feature the sweet Priscilla digital dressed in her Halloween attire, but created in the true artistic fashion of Chris Stern.
