Vintage Hallowe'en Postcard

This week I wanted to try and re-create a vintage type Halloween postcard for the SPA challenge. This is a digital collage made from artist papers (Christine Adolph) for the background, (Dover )copy-free clip art and 4 layers of color filters and textures in Photoshop. I digitally added the 'old' spelling of Hallowe'en . I love the revival these past few years of the old vintage Halloween art that is showing up in art and decorative items in the market. The newer things for sale can't compare. Happy Halloween to you all!
