Today is kind of a bitter sweet day for me, so I decided to just play! This tag is for the newest challenge at Gingersnap Creations "Neutrals plus one Color" and also Tag Tuesday's Banners. Yesterday I started to play with this awesome witch from Scrolls Work Stamps and I knew what I wanted to do with her, but then the rest of my stamps came in (Super Woo Hoo) and I got different ideas! The background is smoked, literally! I've done it in decorative painted and just carry it along with cards. If you do this, keep your distance from the candle and be in a safe place. After you achieve you desired soot effect, do a light spray of matt sealer. I then stamped my image and masked the other clouds to do my sunset. I also stamped a couple of extra times, because I wanted to emboss my bats. Oh I guess I like spending a ton of time cutting out! The tree has quite a few steps and yes it was cut out. I love dimension! The tree was embossed with black on ivory paper and then I added brown and black to the entire tree. The fence and corner spider web are all new Tim Holtz Sizzix line and those came from my Local Enabler (Scrapbooking Made Simple). I added a little grass near the base of tree which both came from Scrolls Work Stamp! I used two techniques from the Technique Junkies, which if you don't subscribe, you really should! It is a totally awesome group!
Hope you all are having a wonderful cool down and enjoying this first day of Fall! I truly appreciate your visits!
Art for arts sake .....
