I made this card using the techniques that Tim Holtz shows on his 12 tags of 2012-October. You can check out his tag and tutorial here.
I am also linking this card to For Fun Challenges-Fall Favorites (I love Halloween!) and Simon Says Stamp Challenge:Dies/Punches-the which is a die cut from the Slice Machine Spooky Alley.
So here's my card:
Technique 1: The background is TH tissue paper that I used orange paint and black dabber paint on. It didn't seem to be enough so I sprayed purple Smooch on it to give it some splatter. I used a gold dabber around the edges but then used some black stamp ink around the edge. Technique 2: The 31 are numbers from a grunge board set I have. I painted those and then used an orange and pitch black alcohol ink to mix with rock candy dry glitter.
This is an awesome product. Whatever color alcohol inks you have is how many (plus a clearish color) glitter you will have. Awesome!
The skeleton also came from a grungeboard letter set. I used white Distress crackle paint on it. The witch is from my Slice machine-Spooky Alley. She is made out of a white piece of cardstock. Then I painted clear rock candy Distress crackle paint on her. I applied alcohol inks to her was able to give her some personality. :)
I felt that my witch got lost against the background so I applied a little gesso to sort of outline her. Then it was too white. So I used dusty concord distress ink to tone it down. I used pop dots on the witch, also.
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time my friends...there is still more Halloween fun to come! :)
