Fun And Funky Artist Trading Cards with the Steampunk Spells
By Alexandra Morein
“Although each and every of the Graphic 45 collections is spectacular and we want to have them all, there are collections which we like the best. For me one of those collections will always be the Steampunk Spells, not only because it is amazing in terms of colors, characters and patterns, but also because it was the first G45 collection that I had a chance to work with and signify my acquaintance with this brand.
On the threshold of the coming Halloween I created a set of these fun and funky ATCs featuring the Steampunk Spells collection.
I am almost sure that a lot of you, G45’ers have it in your stash so I hope to inspire you to start using it. I don’t think these papers are available for purchase now, so those who do not have them can just wait for the collection to be reissued as a “Deluxe Collector’s Edition”. I believe this will definitely happen one day 🙂
May all of you have a great day ahead!” ~Alexandra

Thanks for joining us for this look back to the ghosts of Graphic 45's Halloween past. It is always fun to dust off an old pad you may have never gotten around to using and create something unique and beautiful. Though you can no longer buy this collection, we do regularly return to the classics with Deluxe Collector's Editions so, who knows? Maybe it will return some day. We are so grateful to Alexandra for pulling this one from her vaults to share with us all. We'd love to hear about the old stock G45 you have hidden away for a raining day. Let us know in the comments below. See you back here tomorrow with more great inspiration.
