Halloween..a challenge by Liz Borer

This week over on the Paper Artsy blog we have Liz Borer showing us some amazing projects. This one was inspired by Liz here. I don't have any Halloween stamps so had to go with what I had...

I couldn't find my new tub of grunge paste (found it now phew) so I used puff paint to write trick and treat on a piece of an old box. Most of what I did I followed along with Liz..using haystack..smoked paprika..claret and eggplant frescos. I stenciled some branches with my newly found grunge paste.

I cut the cat and raven from my movers and shapers die in black card and coated them with gloss glaze. the witches face is a Lynn Perella stamp from LP008 stamped onto crackly tissue and put onto a paper artsy paper head and cut to size..I made the hat and painted it black and added some glitter. I also used the bat wings from Eclectic 6. and jewels for the body. I stamped some script randomly and stuck everything down Lastly I went over the lettering with white fire TG and here it is...

Thanks for stopping by.....

  4. The puff works well for the letters! Also it's great that a hat can make any face into a withy poo!

  5. Well, the puff paint works just as well, in fact it is a very interesting alternative (making a note of that..)!

  6. This is brilliant, Lin; I love it!

  7. Stunning Tag, using puff paint sounds easier than painting with GP. I like the touchy feely texture of puff paint too. Wonderful take on Liz's project :-) x

  8. Nicely done Lin, loving the different textures especially the use of corrugate at the back.

  9. Fabulous Lin, great idea to use the puff paint.
