Anyone up for some Halloween projects yet? Our local craft stores already have a heavy supply of Halloween and Christmas decorations up so I might as well add a few pages to my journal. ;D This one is for the Simply Betty Challenges “Anything Halloween” theme.
I used the new Igor Miller stamp from Simply Betty Stamps and Eerie Scene from Make it Crafty to create this scene. And for those of you keeping track… this is my LAST “Green Skin” experiment from the Make it Crafty team – maybe I went a little too overboard on the green?! LOL (You can read about my green face coloring HERE.)
This project uses a lot of the Halloween items I won from Betty’s 12 Days of Halloween challenge from last year, specifically the Igor stamp and bat metal dies. Thanks Betty! My final project for that challenges was the Cauldron Box and the papers I used on this project were left over scraps from that project. Yeah… I kept them!
The moon was a fun experiment that I wasn’t sure if I could pull off or not. The image is just an empty circle and to create the texture of the surface I started with C3 and gradually worked up to C00. Then as some final touches I went in with a white gel pen and added a few splotches and defined the craters a little more. I love how it turned out and I’m glad I persevered.
Some of the things I buy end up being a challenge to use and there are two of them on this one! The Jack-o-lanterns are the one element and the Alice in Wonderland Halloween paper was the other (the playing cards). Both I thought would be easy and used up quickly… and both were purchased last year!! But a new year and new ideas, I suppose. ;D
