October is equal to Halloween
All crafters are starting to show beautiful creations one after another. It is contagious, I also had to create a piece of holloween - with top hat and moustache.
On my #12 tag I first used gesso and in the wet gesso, I have little bits of paper that the gesso acts as glue. When it is dry, I sprayed with Dylusions Fresh lime and London blue and rubbed it well into the ground. Then I stamped with Archival ink jet black and Watering Can to form different layers. Inktense Blocks, I used to make some of the colors a little deeper. Distress ink spiced marmalade, vintage photo, black soot and black embossing powder, I used to the edges and the background for the text. To highlight and give depth, I used drawing coal.
Stamps used: Andy Skinner - 7gypsies - PaperArtsy - Indigo Blu - Dylusions - HeroArts.
