We are happy to announce that Lisa Somerville is our October Home Page Art Winner! Congratulations, Lisa!
Lisa has been stamping since 2002 and is on several design teams including Artistic Outpost, Starving Artistamps, The Rubber Cafe, and Kitchen Sink Stamps. Lisa is also a designer for the Technique Junkie Newsletter.
This month, our theme was "Spooky" and Lisa created a great card that not only fit the theme but did it with playfulness and humor.

When I asked Lisa what inspired this particular card, she told me:
"I had recently picked up the BasicGrey paper pack at a scrap show and was dying to use it, it was one of those weeks, when everything just seemed to be going wrong - thus the sentiment I used. "
I loved the look of her card so I asked how the whole thing came together and Lisa shared:
"The image is stamped in Black on Watercolor paper, then colored using the Marker Watercolor Technique - from a past issue of the Technique Junkies Newsletter."
Now that it's getting close to Halloween, I wanted to know what Lisa's favorite part of this spooky holiday. She told me:
"I enjoy seeing all the kids dressed up in their costumes going Trick-or-Treating. My husband and I loved dressing the boys for Halloween, now that they're older, we have fun dressing our Yellow Lab."
Finally, I asked Lisa what love about stamping. Her reply:
"I love sharing my creative ideas, and the friends stamping has brought into my life."
