We are Family...

Its Release day at Simply Betty Stamps and The Addams Family is in the house! 
 First up for you today is The Addams Family Portrait. Gomez, Morticia, and Wednesday...I mean Christian, Betty and London!

My kids are all like, who are they?  OMG.  I know they saw the newest movie at least.  Geesh.  Icon of my childhood.  My portrait is colored with copics, then I added a touch of Stampendous! Multi glitter.  The background paper is a piece from the Basic Grey Eerie collection, and I embossed the corners with a flourish from the Stampendous! Damask Chair set with Midnight Black EP.

And next, the couple of the hour...Betty and Christian...this is Spooky Couple!  You can also get Christian (Gomez) or Betty (Morticia) as individuals.

After I colored my image with copics I sponged the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Dusty Concord, then sprayed it with Pewter Shimmer Spritz  from Tsukineko.   These are my FAVORITE new Spritzes...they don't clog and they aren't too opaque.   I also sponged a touch of Brilliance Moonlight White around the edges.  

My spiderweb was embossed with the spiderweb Cuttlebug folder on more of the Eerie pattern paper.  I then gently ran my Brilliance Moonlight White Dew Drop over the raised part of the web to give it some gorgeous shimmer.  ANd then here's a closeup shot of the Spooky Couple.

OK, now hurry on over to the Simply Betty Stamps web store to pick up a handful of the new Teen Scene stamps!   Also be sure to hop by the SBS blog to see lots more samples and the rest of the release!

Thanks so much for coming by today!  I appreciate your visits and your comments :)  And don't forget that I have Blog candy up for grabs still this week at THIS POST.
