Can you believe it, we are nearly at the end of October and Halloween is just around the corner.
Well, my project today is not strictly a Halloween project, but it has a sort of halloweeny, spooky feel to it, at least I think so.
I started by taking 4 ATC (2.5 by 3.5") sized bits of smooth stamping card and blended 4 colours of Distress Inks over them with my Ink Blending Tools. I then added some stamping using the Distress Inks and the Chicken Wire and Regency Background stamps and then, while the ink was still wet, sprinkled some Perfect Pearls powder over them. Once dry I brushed off the excess. The next step was to do some more stamping, this time I used black Archival Ink and stamps from the set: Architecture A 4. Two more bits of stamping followed, this time using Gesso and the Swirls, Splats & Dots stamp
Tim Holtz's Attic Treasures set. I also added some strips of paper from an old book page.
Donna Rodgers stamps "Age" with Black Archival ink onto white card. I cut it out and coloured lightly with some Distress inks.I now mounted my 4 ATCs on a piece of black card and glued the Donna image in front. I also added the Word Carpe Diem from the Journaling Words 3 set. I added some embellishments from my stash and gave it some spritzes of Perfect Pearls Mists to tie it all together. I also did a bit of shading with a charcoal pencil around the main images..
I'll leave you with a few detailed pictures, until next time!
