Something Wicked This Way Comes

 With Halloween just around the corner, I created this postcard in the spirit of the holidays and a little bit of humor on keeping up with "social distancing." This could easily be a journal page as well.


Witch Holding Broom

Banksy Gas Mask Flower Girl 

Kids with Giant Jack-o-Lantern

Field of Stars 

Something Wicked This Way comes

Markers (I used Tombo standard pens) 

White Jelly Ink pen

Black permanent ink

Post-it notes for Masking stamped images




1. I stamped the Banksy girl, the Jack-o-Lantern kids and the witch using the black ink, allowed to dry, then stamped these same stamps onto the post-it notes for masks. 

2. After cutting the images out of the post-it notes, they were applied over the stamped images to protect them from all the coloring I was going to do.

3. Using the stars stamp, the background was filled out. Something Wicked stamp, was also inked up then stamped center top over the stars.

4. Colored in the background and created a floor line while blending pens. Once background was colored, the masks were removed to allow those images to be then filled with color.

Happy Halloween!
