Alfred Hitchcock and The Master of Suspense - LeighSBDesigns New Release!

Howzit Stamping Friends!

On this day in 1980 we lost Alfred Hitchcock so I thought it only fitting that today's new LeighSBDesigns Art Stamps release be a tribute to the Master of Suspense and tomorrow is officially the start of Half-O-Ween, what could be more fitting right😃  Alfred Hitchcock is now up in my Etsy Boutique and waiting to scare you into making some creeptastic projects, I can't wait to see what you create😋  He's available at a special introductory price until I release my next new art stamp on May 2nd so grab him while he's on sale😋

Here he is coloured with Copics and looking splendid with the iconic Bird perched on his arm.


Did you know?
You may think that Half-O-Ween is a fairly new concept but it's actually an old tradition recognized by many European countries.  In Germanic folklore, Walpurgisnacht, also called Hexennacht or Heksennacht (Dutch), literally means "Witches' Night".  Traditionally the start of Half-O-Ween is "Witches Night" on April 30th and then observed all May long.  The first known written occurrence of the English translation, "Walpurgis Night" is from the 19th century.   Many of the things we still do today, but have forgotten the reasons why, originated from this time like the ringing of Church bells and tying tin cans behind the car of newlyweds...all done to ward off evil during Half-O-Ween!
For my Half-O-Ween make I created this digi project in Photoshop CS6 and went with classic black, white and grey.
